About Document Fitting

1) The Document Fitting group on the Page Layout tab provides controls for you to select the number of horizontal (width) pages, the number of vertical (height) pages, and the control for scaling the document.

2) The Width and Height dropdowns allow the selection of the number of pages into which you want to divide the project view. OnePager will then automatically adjust the scaling factor as shown below:

3) When you select Automatic for both the width and height settings, the Scale window is active which gives you choices for scale factors as shown below:

Width and Height Settings

1) Starting with a height and width setting of one (1), indicating that you only want one output page, OnePager will set an appropriate scale factor.

2) For example, if you start off with a Letter page size, the scale factor will be 73% all other things being equal.

3) If you change the page size to Legal, OnePager will rescale the project view to fit as one page on the legal size document by changing the scale factor in this case to 87% as shown below:

4) Looking at the resulting scale factor, unfortunately hidden in the above illustration, we see that it is changed to 87%:

Scale Factor

5) If you change the Height and Width setting to Automatic, the Scale window is activated and you may either access the dropdown menu provided or enter your own scale factor.

6) The dropdown scale factor menu is shown below:

7) In the example above, the scale factor was set to 87% for a legal size document. Retaining the legal size document and reducing the scale factor to 50% gives these before and after results in Print Preview view mode:

Before – Scale Factor at 87%
P52-5 2 2-(6)-05292015.png
After – Scale Factor 50%

8) Rescaling up from 99% to 150% yield’s the following result:

After – Scale Factor 150%

Changing From Numerical Page Width and Height To Automatic

8) When you have previously selected a numerical value for the number of horizontal and vertical pages and subsequently change these values back to the Automatic setting, OnePager will reset the number of pages based on the document's size and scale factor settings in effect at the time.
