How do i print the templates?
« on: May 24, 2004, 08:35:56 am »
Ok on chapter 6 there's the layout templates. I TRIED printing them out in the following programs:

MS Paint
MS Photoeditor
Internet Explorer
PaintShop Pro 8 (whatever is on the CD)

and for the LIFE of me I cannot get the %!@#%@#$%@% templates to print to scale! The spinner prints out 4 inches instead of the 6! The joystick at 2 inches! I tried in PSP to get it to print at 100% and still can't get it to work!

What am I doing wrong?!?? Please helpm me!
I like south beach, women are hot, foreign, and don't know how to dial 911.

Odd, MS paint worked perfectly for me.  It automatically tiled the image and printed it out perfectly.  You could always just take it to kinkos and have them print it, it'll only cost $3-5 if its in black and white and it'll all be on one big sheet.  I'd recommend bringing a ruler to make sure the size is accurate when you go to pick it up though.

Some programs like Adobe Photoshop give you the option of PRINT SCALING when you print.  If you have this option on your program, then you want to make sure that 100% is entered for the scale and make sure you UNCHECK "Scale to Fit Media."

(Scale to Fit Media basically enlarges the image to be as big as possible on the sheet of paper which is bad wheen printing templates that need to be an exact size.)
