Export PDF - Embed Scaling
« on: November 16, 2020, 11:53:22 am »
Dear all!

I was wondering if it is possible to embed the scaling ratio of the generated PDF to be able to measure in Adobe Acrobat without setting a scale factor (similar to the ouput of an Autocad file).

If not, does someone know a workaround for it?

Many Thanks,
Gerald

I don't think that is a feature available in the PDF format, because it instead contains a page size.

What you potentially could do is set a custom page size, but then it would not work well for printing.

Thanks for the suggestion.
I though in a similar direction, but printed would be also a great feature :)

BR,
Gerald
