I set my drawing sheet to ANSI D (22"x34") and hit OK. The I go to the layout sheet to print, say my floor plan sheet, and I hit 11"x17" for paper size and my drawing scale @ Check Plot 1/2" scale and it is giving my an error. It says oversized drawing sheet even though I set it to the (22"x34") which at 1/2 of that it is 11"x17". So why am i having this issue? I use X9 Premier. I don't want to print on the sheet with (fit to page, that will make it not to scale). I have also included two pics.  Thanks in advance.

You have ARCH D selected not ANSI D.  At least the print preview thinks that for some reason.

Yea I dont know why it says ARCH D when I hit print on the layout sheet, even though I set up on the plan, drawing sheet set for ANSI D. Doesnt make any sense.

It kinda looks like that is the issue in the print preview.  You might try bumping it by changing it to a different size say OK then open back up change it back again.  Otherwise maybe tech support on Monday.  Not sure what else it might be.

You are printing from Layout right.  So is it the layout sheet that you have set to ARCH D and plan to ANSI D ?

I am wanting to print from the layout sheet.

 

Under the plan itself it is set as follow: Drawing sheet set to = ANSI D (22" x 34" ) Scale: 1/4"

 

Under the layout sheet print window box: Printer paper = (11' x 17") Print source: ARCH D (24" x 36" ) Check Plot at 1/2" scale.

 

I DO NOT know why while under the layout sheet the print source is set to ARCH D and not the correct one: ANSI D. That's what I am on here asking about it. Again I want to print from the layout sheet.

Ok so maybe it is your Layout Drawing Sheet Setup that is causing the issue.  From Layout go to File> Print> Drawing Sheet Setup.

Yea I just saw that and sure enough it was the wrong size: ARCH D so I just changed it to the correct size I want: ANSI D but when I did that, the sheet itself shrunk down and the borders I have and all the text on the right side is all set too large. Is there an easy way to re-size all that?

From Page 0 Marquee select everything and go to Transform and Replicate and Resize by .9166 and be careful not to select the paper, by turning off the Drawing Sheet first, and then maybe you will only have to fix the left side borders manually.

you could also just hit "Clear printer info" and start over.

Just FYI not sure what printer you use but I buy 12x18 sheets so 24x36 sheets plot nicely at half scale or 1/8". Most oversize home office style printers will print up to13x19 sheets and check sets are to a usable scale.

      Has the Print Model function been removed from X11? I can't find it under the normal menu, File>Print>Print Model.

      I'm working on a remodel of a house that is very small....and old. It is only about 1,000 SF.  My default text is Chief Blueprint @ 6".  This size font on such a small footprint seems way too large...but, I'm worried if I change it to 4"...and print the plan at 1/4" will the font be too small to read?  
       
      Maybe I should use a different font altogether?  
       
      Thanks...

      Recently had a computer crash and lost a bunch of info that was not backed up now after reinstalling I'm having issues printing anything. Should I redownload the program?

      Hey ChiefTalk,
       
      I'm getting an error message when attempting a layout print preview, instructing me to update the drivers on my printer. However, after verifying that all drivers are up to date, the "DPI = 0" error message still persists. Has anyone received this error message before? If not, is there another workaround I can employ here to get this printed? No matter what parameters I change on the Print Preview page or Drawing Sheet Setup page, the message persists.
       
      p.s. Our T520 is in proper working condition and prints full ARCH D size plans from our main computer, but this is the first attempt to use it from this computer.
       
      Thanks for your time everyone.

      Is there a way to enlarge the printout of a floorplan?
