Print scale problems...

N/A

Hi all.
My goal is to create an A4 pdf document containing my geometry to scale 1:1 (to
print it later form my office).

I have a geometry drawn in the model view : a simple 50x100 rectangle (mm).
I insert a Model View in Sheet1, selecting this rectangle. Sheet size is set to
A4 horizontal, and no background is used.
I then use Pdf995 as a printer to create a PDF file.
The created PDF document is always of size 11x8.5 inches, although my SolidEdge
document was a A4... As a consequence (I presume), the geometry is scaled down on
the pdf, so I lose the 1:1 ratio I wanted.
That's not a problem with Pdf995, since when I try to create a pdf from another
app, proceeding the same way, I get an A4 document as expected.
So I presume there are other page size settings to do somewhere else in SolidEdge.
Can someone tell me what I am missing?
Thanks a lot.
Cedric.

Ok guys, I had forgotten to set the paper size to A4 in the settings dialog (from
the print dialog)...
Now I can print to scale.
Cheers.
