I am trying to create a 5"x7" layout in Manifold but I can't seem to get it to use the scale that I want. My layout is based on a map in which I have a saved view at my target scale (1 inch = 2 miles). I created a layout using the map as the parent object and have specified my saved view as the layout extent. I went to page setup and set the paper size at 5x7. I added a scale bar to my layout and then I exported it to pdf. When I print the pdf, the layout prints out larger than 5x7 even though I have spoecified "no page scaling" in the print dialog box. When I measure the scale bar on the printed map it measures about 1 inch = 2.3 miles. This is driving me crazy. What am I doing wrong?
