Printing Troubles - Fit to Sheet

I am having trouble with printing in revit as I am new to it and am used to the way autocad works. For starters I cant seem to get my prints to fill the page. In the attached image below, the most inner box is my title block which I created as 24x6. The next box out is a box that revit seems to be placing on my drawings. I do not know what this is or what dictates where it goes. Thirdly, I do not have it outlined but if you can see the extents of the image you can see there is alot of white space placed outside of black box revit is placing around my drawings. I would like to know how to fix this and have my drawings fit properly to the sheet. It seems revit is scaling them down to fit them to the sheet and with all the extra white space I am doubting they are at scale on paper.

Revit is not very good with printing "Fit to Page", as it always adds a ton of extra margin space. If you are printing to PDF, you should set it to "Zoom: 100%" instead (Print » "Print Setup..." button). This will yield a true-scale print.


Printing to PDF is pretty easy using a PDF writer (such as CutePDF which is free), and taking advantage of Print » "Selected views/sheets" to print a set of drawings in one routine.
