Subject: RE: New BugX upload.

I printed the BugXr16.pdf file to an HP DesignJet this evening and initially everything looks fine, with one exception.

I don't know if you were intending for most people to print on 8.5" x 11" paper in poster mode, but the actual PDF document size is 24" x 36" and it won't print fully on a single ANSI-D sized sheet (22" x 34").

If someone were to have the plan printed at Kinkos, Officemax, etc. and that person didn't specify not to "fit" the plan to an ANSI-D sheet, these service centers will usually force a fit and the actual plan will then be "off" by a bit in the Y-axis or both axises depending on the type of "fit". The other alternative would be to have the sheet printed on an ANSI-E sized sheet, but the cost usually goes up quite a bit.

If you can squeeze the 24" (Y-axis) dimension down by +2" then you should be able to fit an ANSI-D sheet. If the views were moved closer together,  drawing scale and legend box moved up, the text font size reduced, and margins suppressed, I think that everything will fit on a single ANSI-D sheet.

Thanks for the hard work!
