Subject: RE: Re: Printing BugX pdf plans from files

Thanks Giuseppi. My version of Adobe Reader X didn't have any scaling options. So I downloaded XI and I see it has a custom scaling button and then a poster option. I'll give it a try.  Interesting that the inverse of .81 is 1.23456789

No. I haven't actually tried. I have Acrobat Pro 9. But if you were to print @ 123% or more precisely 123.45679% (divide 1 by .81 and multiply by 100) I think it'll print out the correct size.

> Has anyone ever tried printing the BugX plans that are in the files section? I printed them out full size using AdobeReaderX and the poster option - and they came out at pretty close to 13/16 size or just over 81%. That equates to a 24" wingspan exactly.
