setting up printer format! PLEASE HELP!

I have to set up my drawing on the model page so that I can save it as a PDF and then transfer it into adobe illustrator. My scale is 1:1, and when I put it on the model page I'm doing a 1/8" : 1' scale. It should fit on the page no problem, its only a 9" model plan on 1/4 scale, so it should be 4.5" on the page. However, it's too big for the page. Can someone please help me solve this issue? I need an answer pronto!

9" at a 1/4" scale is 2.25", not 4.5".

So at 1/8" it's 1.125".


This is where actually using a layout and a viewport comes in handy to double-check yourself before plotting: try it. If you don't know how, post your DWG with the object here for someone to help you out.
