Photoshop 23.5.4 // MacOS 10.15.7 Catalina // Epson ET8550 driver 12.62

Source: Imported 2D CAD Drawing (saved to A4 PDF in CAD then imported into Photoshop).

In Photoshop, drawings scale as 100% using Photoshop Rulers (ie 10cm = 10cm)

  • Printing the imported file directly using the A4 plain paper settings produces a correctly scaled diagram, 100%

A new A4 sheet is created from File/New/International Paper/A4 at the same resolution as imported PDF (300DPI) and then the drawing is cut from the original sheet and pasted into the newA4 sheet. These drawings also measure 100% using Photoshop Rulers.

  • However printing the NewA4 sheet using the same plain paper printer settings produces an incorrectly scaled drawing of about 99.5%.

Other information:

In Photoshop I save a copy of NewA4 using File/Save As/Photoshop PDF (NewA4.pdf)

  • If we read NewA4.pdf into Adobe Acrobat Reader (2022.003.203.14) and print using the same printer driver and settings we get a correctly scaled drawing, 100%.
  • If we read this NewA4.pdf into Photoshop and print it we get an incorrectly scaled drawing, 99.5%.

Going back to Photoshop and using the NewA4.psd drawing we can effectively print to PDF using the printer driver, Save as PDF.

  • If we read this file into Acrobate Reader and print it we get an incorrectly scaled drawing again, 99.5%

 

I tried this with A3. The first Photoshop print produced a correctly scaled drawing. Subsequent prints however are incorrectly scaled as well. Is there something being saved with the file after the first print that affects subsequent prints?

Try holding the spacebar when selecting print. That will reset the print dialogue in Photoshop and any print seetings in the current document
