Precisely - there is a physical layout diagram that must print at the exact 
size.  I could care less if they want to scale the VIEW of the PDF online, but 
it has to print correctly.

To my mind, making PDF arbitrarily scalable is the off-beat.  I want to create 
an electronic version that exactly mimics the original printed version.

| Not to step on Lester's toes at all, but we recently had the same

| installations.
| 
| We wanted to include a full size template in the manual that an

| the PDF document was resized at all during printing, the drilling
| template wouldn't be accurate.
| 
| So it's not an uncommon request.
