Margo, do you have a check mark in the "auto-rotate and center" area? It's directly below the page scaling option. On my printer, if I have that selected and even if I have none selected for scale, I get a smaller page so everything is too small. Gotta love computers and printers...especially when they have a mind of their own.

P.S. Also, check your printer selections. If I go to Page, Setup in my printer setup area, I have similar selections to what Adobe has. If you have this area set to fit-to-page, it may override the Adobe instructions you are trying to set.

I'm not ready for May but I printed the page and measured the test square at the top right of the 1" and 2" Half-Square Triangles' page. Mine measured at the proper 1 inch size. (if you have it, select NONE to page scaling.)


I have no idea why mine printed out fine the first time, but when I tried it today it was off! :roll:
Sue is going to check on it tonight, but she also doesn't understand why sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

At any rate....just be sure to check the 1" test square, and if it's not exactly right, try copying that printed sheet at different percentages until you can get it to measure correctly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

If your foundations are printing out at the wrong size, until I can contact Sue and figure out what's going on, please try to use your copier to get the scale right.

If it's printing out too small, try copying the page you have printed out at 108% and see if that gets the test square to measure 1" x 1". Keep tweaking the percentage until it's right on your printer/copier.

Sorry for the problems.....I'll get back with you.

Thanks, Margo.
I had paid attention to the "no scaling" yesterday, but when I tried it again the print screen had also the box checked "Choose paper size by PDF size" which then showed the measurements for A4. After I unchecked that box it printed correctly. Hope this makes sense, in case somebody else runs into the same problem. It had never happened to me before and I was using the same printer for previous months.
Have a great day,
Barbara

Good morning everyone,
Has somebody else had a problem printing the paper piece pattern? My printer asked for A4 paper and since I don't have that the pattern did not come out correct. Any help would be appreciated.

Barbara, if you will follow Sue's directions on page 5 you will see that you do not need any special paper to print the foundations. You just need to be sure that the "scaling" on your printer is set to "0" or "no scaling" or something similar. The test square on the first page of foundations must measure exactly 1" x 1".
I don't know why your printer would ask for a special paper.
