make sure your print setup for the layout sheet is done 1st at the correct size you want ,Pro defaults to 12x18 ,it needs to be setup separately from the Print setup of the Plan file.

 

I believe the error message is actually incorrect in Pro ,perhaps not in the latest version? you can't rescale in layout like you can in Chief,  but I think if you send to layout at say 1/4" scale and you get that message , you just need to delete the layout box and resend at say 1/8" scale to make it fit on your page. If you resize the layout box with the edit handles it will no longer be at the correct scale ,hence the need to resend.

 

Not sure if this has changed in Pro 2015 , but it's what you used to need to do.

I just checked and the latest version (2015) of Pro still does not allow re-scaling a sent view (as in Premier). What you do as Mick suggested is to delete the failed (too large) view and resend at a lower scale in a new unit of time.
