How Print to Paper Size Smaller Than Template?
« on: April 02, 2021, 01:07:40 am »
Scribus 1.5.6.1
Canon pixma Pro-100 printer

I made a template for 13" x 19" paper, with three image frames.
I loaded three images.
I decided to print on 8.5" x 11" paper.
I could not figure out how to get all three images printed completely.
If I set paper size to 8.5 x 11, a window of 8.5 x 11, centered in the 13 x 19, is printed.

Is there a way to "project" the larger page down to the smaller one?

hi abend

normally this is a part of the printer driver, not a task for the .pdf generating software.

Export to PDF, use PDF viewer's feature to scale down when printing? (Most PDF viewers have Fit to page as default)
