    Printing a pdf file/drawing to an exact scale????

    montejw360

      I've received some drawings of buildings we are building from our contractor and would like to print them "to scale".  The drawing properties show the drawings to be on 24 x 18 inch paper and my printer can only handle 11 x 17 inch paper.  "Fit to printing area" or whatever it is scales to 60%.  The drawing is 1/2" = 1' and the only thing I can get is a 60% scale which doesn't fit any normal arch. or engineering scale.

       

      How can I scale a file/drawing to an exact/custom scale?  I have Reader X and Acrobat X Pro and Distiller X Pro, as well as a bunch of other "PDF reader" programs that I've tried to no avail.  Help.
