Hi there. I’ve been using Intaglio for a long time now and I’ve fount this “ACTUAL SIZE” button in Layout/Zoom panel.
At first I’d like to admit, that I am using 4 different scales and everything works just fine for me. I mean that for example I can draw 1:25 scale, with right dimensions, printed just perfectly on my printer. For a vinyl cutter, when 1:1 scale is needed everything works fine too.
When it comes to printing → Things are not really in scale on the A4 paper… I mean that everything is printed well, the text shown, says right what I was drawing but
When it comes to 1:1 scale design to work with a cutter, the image on screen can’t be seen in 1:1 size on the LCD panel… I’d like to be able to work in 1:1 scale, be able to click “ACTUAL SIZE” which would let me to see the real dimensions of the drawing and finally let it printed in a way that my laser printer would have drawing printed in exact 1:20 scale for example…
QUESTION 1: How to set all these things to make it possible
QUESTION 1a: Is it possible?
QUESTION 2: How this magic “ACTUAL SIZE” works? Why would I want to use it if it don’t lead me to the real "actual size of the drawing?
I’d like to draw on my screen in 1:1 scale, meaning that 5cm in real world could be measurable right on the LCD screen of my monitor. So this obviously changes every time I change the zoom setting. So, the “ACTUAL SIZE” would bring a right scale to a view to make it possible to see thing in the real size. Always in the same manner. It actually works like this, but the result is far from perfect on my screen ( maybe there is a “actual size scale setting” somewhere there?
Generally the problem is that if I set a scale and everything for my screen, then I do have a weird scale on my output file for a cutter. When the output size for a cutter is correct, ACTUAL SIZE does not show the 1:1 scale on my screen…
How You deal with it?
It would be perfect to draw and view things in 1:1 scale and then have the option to print it in for example 1:20 scale.
I don’t really know where is the problem. Maybe I don’t have intelligent enough printer driver, maybe I am missing something. Or maybe there should be a “ACTUAL SIZE” scale setting somewhere there…
Can You deal with this? Can You help?
