Trying to print on 8.5 x 11

Recommended Posts

I am trying to print out a template I've made through Autocad. Basically it is an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. 1/2" border and a title block along the bottom. When I go to print, it prints out small on the 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. How do I get it to print so that when it comes out, I can put a ruler to it and see that it has the same dimensions as I did when I drew it. I am new to this.

You'll have to set some sort of scale (what is it anyway?). Example: 1"=1'.


Make sure center the plot is checked off too.


What is plot area set to? Display, Limits, or Window?
