print problem
« on: January 06, 2017, 04:36:02 AM »
Guys, for some reason my DC decided to print this drawing busing the center point of the 9.63 radius as part of the visible drawing as seen in the pdf. I would like to center this drawing in the paper and have it larger. Is there a way to print only the visible drawing?

   Thanks, KC.

The extraneous point comes not from the center of the arc, but from the arc dimension. You may have to replace that arc dimension with one that is "Draw(n) as text". Looks like a glitch to me.

Bob, you are spot on. The problem is with the dimension. I tried putting it in every way I could but the results are always the same. It looks like it needs to be a text entry. Thanks for the help.

Don't forget we also have the Print Section command. Run it, set opposite corners of the area you want printed, and then set scale and other factors as normal. Only whatever falls within the region will be printed.

Droll, I never noticed that or used it. Perfect. Thanks to all.

The problem is the 'Radius Dimension' places its first point at the center of the arc its measuring and the Print command does not ignore this point, the way it ignores the center point of the actual  arc.
