How do you print a 1:1 scale if your sizes are furniture scale?

Previously to print pdf's this is what I'd do:

- Page layout letter size (usually landscape)
- make draw views whatever scale fits best on the title block
- print by layer to postscript
- convert postscript to PDF


NOW, I need to make ALL my draw views at 1:1 scale so none of them will fit on a 8.5 x 11 sheet.

But I still need to make a PDF.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks.

I think I just figured it out. I can create all draw views at 1:1 scale, then when ready to print to pdf just Fit to Area on a letter size page. Keep Preserve Annotation Sizes checked. Print by layer. Go back to 1:1 size when complete.
