Help!
Need help on how to setup my plan on pdf

I've been using Doublecad to draw out one of my plans and Bullzip pdf printer to make a .pdf. This part I have no trouble with. It's when I choose the paper size A4 for a tiled pdf I'm having trouble with. I made the tiled pdf for A4 size, as thats what most printers use. When I go to print the plan it's coming out to the wrong scale. I choose none in Print scaling and checked choose paper source by pdf page size.

Any ideas where I am going wrong?

Are things the right size in the pdf? When I was first working on making plans, I had a lot of trouble and part of it was the actual pdf.

I figured it out now. I actually selected A3 instead of A4 when making the pdf. The next minor problem is when I printed the correct size plan, why is it that the pages don't line up to well? e.g sticking the fuz tiles together but the out lines do not meet up correctly.

Maybe you will understand what I mean with a basic drawing to show what I mean.

Is this normal or is this a error that I am doing somewhere?

Thanks
Paul
