Actual printing size on the screen,

Actual printing size on the screen,

 

I’m wondering if there is a tool on the Revit that enables displaying the actual printing size on the screen. This feature is quite helpful as we can see exactly how the drawing will precisely looks like on the paper.

 

For example, if I need to print with a scale of 1:200, then is there a tool that displays the actual size on the screen. Other software, like ArcGIS, has this feature.

 

Thank you for the help,

 

Best

Is this what you are talking about? See image - Zoom to sheet size?

Not sure!

 

If I print a plan with a scale 1:100 on a paper and try to match this paper with the drawing on the screen do they exactly match? Are they identical?

 

i need to print the plan first in paper and compare it with what i have in the screen and let you know.

 

best

In the set-up are you printing 100% or fit to page? this will have an affect.

As for the printed drawing on paper, it should be 1:100. Then I’ll compare it with what I have on the screen.

 

Then I’m matching 1:100 paper with 1:100 screen

 

Does it work?
