I was referring to the aspect ratio of objects in the printout and in the model: squares are no longer squares, circles are squashed, etc. I want to stress that not only the printout isn’t what’s previewed, but the model view is distorted after printing. Zooming doesn’t work right and if the model is visible at all, it is distorted.
However, your description was very helpful. If I draw a rectangle representing the page, as you describe and then resize the window to just include this page, then the printout seems to match the preview and the model view is not corrupted afterwards. As clumsy as these steps are [*], it’s a huge improvement over what I’ve had to do so far. Thank you!
There is still clearly a bug that leads to the corruption of the view if the printout needs to be tiled onto multiple pages, but I at least know how to avoid that situation now.
[*] Zoom extents doesn’t work in my case because I have multiple scenes located in different places in space and zoom extents seems to want to include the origin, regardless of where visible objects are in space.
