Plotting Area

When I plot and change the X/Y it move the drawing but it also shows my drawing being cut off about a half inch(1cm) from the right edge but it allows my drawing to get very close to the left edge without cutting off the drawing. how do I center the plotting area? Using "center the plot" doesnt solve the problem.


thanks guys

to make it easier to verify what you mean and what your settings are:

  • set the plotter-driver to a PDF-one
  • upload a screenshot of the plot-dialog (after you have set the values)
  • plot to PDF and upload this PDF
  • save and upload a drawing we see all your settings and what your X-movement does what you don't like to.

Does "Plot Preview" display this problem?

Are the margins uneven only on the hard copy?

Are you selecting the "Expanded" sheet size?
