Printing Large Drawings On Normal Size Paper In Qcad

If you have a large drawing like a house drawn to scale, but need to print that on normal size paper, (like Letter size) there are a few steps you need to take.

EDIT > Current Drawing Preferences > Paper > Paper Format > (Set your paper size and paper orientation)

FILE > Print Preview.

Choose the scale that works for your drawing

Choose the scale that works for your drawing

From the TOOLS Toolbar: Scale 1″ = 256″ (in our case we needed 1″ = 256″)
From the TOOLS Toolbar: Fit to page
Magnification Toolbar: AUTO ZOOM
From the TOOLS Toolbar: Toggle black and white.

For more help see HELP > Manual

Note: At least this is how we got this to work in Ubuntu Jackalope.
