Scaling the Drawings
The Drawing library enables you to export a PDF document that is bigger or smaller than its original elements.
The scaling feature is convenient when you generate a multi-page PDF output by using the automatic page-breaking feature. Because the original dimensions usually look too big in PDF, you can specify a suitable scale factor to get a better output for print. To scale the content when you export files to PDF, use the
scale option from the Drawing library. While the
scale setting affects the content, the output paper size and page margins remain the same. However, scaling affects the position of the headers and footers of page templates.
The following example demonstrates how to set a scale factor of
0.8 and keep an A4 page size and a two-centimeter page margin.
