i see I can scale to feet or inches but not feet and inches. So 39 inches would be 3'3"
how do i get feet and inches instead of just inches, which i then have to manually calculate to feet and inches anyway by dividing by 12
In the mean time maybe make a printed table.
This is already built into Acrobat, but unfortunately there is no user interface to modify the settings in the PDF file:
A PDF file can contain custom scaling information for one or more areas on a page. This information is then used by Acrobat to display measurements. The system can display measurements in feet/inches, if the PDF file is configured that way. This configuration information is usually added to the file by the PDF generator (e.g. your CAD program). For a PDF document that does not have this information, you are stuck with the options presented by Acrobat.
Karl - If this information is not defined, do you know if there's a third party solution to be able to set this?
So, for example, say that I scan a print into a .pdf. Is there a way for me to take that .pdf and set custom scaling information?
Has anyone found a successful method of exporting to Acrobat so that the built in measuring tool displays the measurement in architectural units (feet and inches)? If so, please describe your process.
