Hi,

I am currently using Photoshop to create panels for a home cockpit. In Photoshop, I have my Canvas set to 325mm by 115mm. I select Tablolid and make sure my scale is set to 100% and click print. But the print is about 5mm smaller than what I had selected in Photoshop. It is not my printer as I tried making the same sized shape in ArchiCAD and that printed out accuratly. What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks,

Brady

Page setup options (borderless, expand to fit etc)?

Check that whatever you set in ARchiCAD is exactly that in Photoshop's print dialog (and print driver).

Work in document units of Pixels and use Pixels per Centimeter for the resolution.

3839px x 1358px at 118PPC (there will be a little rounding).

Hi,

I am working on another document that is 111mm by 61mm. I set the Ruler Units to Pixels, Type to Pixels, Print Resoultion to 300ppc, and the screen resolution to 72ppc and the print is still off. The print comes of at 107mm by 59mm. I tried installing printer drivers but the second I did, Photoshop would crash everytime I click Print or Control+P.

Simple reset: hold the space bar when you open the print window. It resets the print dialogs
