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

    montejw360 Level 1

      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.
