Corel 8 printingissue
I recently upgraded my shop with a new computer with windows 10, and I upgraded to Corel 8 and upgraded all of my drivers from ULS for the new programing.
I'm having a problem printing though. Every time I send something to print from Corel to either my printer or my laser the image gets enlarged. I have been through a ton of dialog boxes trying to find something that might be causing this but I'm not really a computer guy. I donít keep up with terminology, and I don't know anything about programing. I'm hoping one of you bright folks here can give me some idea of how to get Corel to print the actual size that I put into my drawings.

Many thanks

Could it be your monitor resolution?

When you print, check the "Layout" tab and make sure that "Image position and size" has "As in document" checked. That setting will control the output and if you have something else selected then you will not likely get the results you want. Oh, and you do mean "X8" (18), not "8", correct?

Check this:

hit "print" in Corel, this window should show up:


Next to the 'general' tab on top is the 'layout' tab--- click that,
you'll get this window...
MAKE SURE the "As in document" is chosen and NOT "fit to page"...actually, just make sure your's looks like this! :)


Might not be it, but worth checking! :)

That's it. Mine was set for page settings. I ran a test page and it was dead on.

Thanks All you folks are life savers
