I forgot to mention that i'm new to Home Designer Pro. And i'm not good at figuring out how to respond to people who have provided feedback or solutions so I'm hoping this is the right way.
I'm responding to "Solver". I've added my software and version to my signature as suggested.
I'm trying Solver's suggestion to try half scale, but need to confirm the steps to take. I need to send this to a commercial printer so i don't know if it works until I pick up the print job and pay for each print out.
Here's my approach:
1. Using my plan, I create a customized Drawing Sheet with a 24" by 36" height/width size and a scale of 1/4" = 1 foot. This gives me a sheet that fits what I'm trying to print.
2. Next i click on File, Print and the Print View window comes up. I click on "Save as PDF", then paper size of ARCH (12" x 18") and click under Drawing Scale "Check Plot at"... 1/2 Scale.
My questions is: If I send this PDF to my commercial printer and tell him that I want him to print it on 24" by 36" and tell him to "Fit to Paper" will that give me a final print job with a 1/4" = 1' print out of my my 24" by 36" sheet?
I'm not sure if telling to scale it up (double it size from 12" by 18" to 24" by 36") that I might end up with the line sizes being twice their normal size along with the print out. I know this sounds confusing but please help me with the right steps. It costs money to have the commercial printer do a trial and error print out.
Thanks for your help.
