hi. your answer is striking me as slightly passive aggressive.
if you are asking me if I have asked this question before it appears that I have asked this question before. it has been a constant problem which i have ignored for two years and which i would like to solve soon.
what would be preferable to me if if you would point out something on this thread that actually solves the problem because I did not get anything out of that conversation that was able to solve the problem and if I had I wouldn't have to ask the question again.
are you indicating that I need to run some kind of terminal command to fix this? It seems really odd to have to run terminal commands to get this to work correctly...
hi. i think perhaps you are missing the point.
your answer appears to be indicating that a set of Terminal Commands will turn off the AUTO scale feature that you are indicating has been implemented in Preview as a Default setting?
however, irrespective of whether this is in fact the defaut (is there a way for me to check this?) - actually /changing/ the Scale Amount should result in a print that is scaled accordingly. if I enter 25% it should print 25% and if I put in 50% it should print at 50%.
this is what i am asking on this post.
hey man. thanks.
i got the terminal commands to work. sometimes those tech articles can be very tricky to read and unless something is extremely clear to me I am hesitant to get into terminal and start messing around. that said, the 0 settings seem to fix most of this. THANKS.
one thing that does appear buggy is that the actual percentage entries (you can see this in the images I posted) /don't/ change the preview size or the resulting print size for either of the default settings.
i mean, i can't control the percentage size of the print when it defaults to Scale to Fit or when it default to actual size and this seems like it is a bug at least on my system.
CHEERS and THANKS
the answer on this one is that in order to get the percentage change in Preview to take effect you have to "tab out" of the percentage dialog by either clicking in one of the other dialog windows or by hitting the Tab Key.
since in my experience this is very non-standard behaviour i would consider this a bug basically and think it should be fixed.
i seem to have asked this one or another way to the forum and gotten no good answers on it for almost two years so i do think it could be fixed and it would be a helpful improvement for other.
