I'm using Nanocad Alpine 10 (The version that come with ITW Alpine Software)

I setup a layout sheet on a Lettre paper size at scale 1:1 (8.5" x 11") i can put my model space drawing at scale within the viewport.
But my problem is printing the Layout Sheet in paper view.

Probably i miss something but my print setting look good but when trying to print using the plot area Layout it look like my layout is scaled a lot larger than the paper size i'm using (Letter 8.5" x 11")

See this screen shot: The white rectangle is my paper size (8.5" x 11") and the red rectangle it the drawing scaled at this size.

The only work around i found is using the plot area Windows and set my real paper size.

Please help me uderstand why this is not working with layout plot area?

I have found the solution.
I'm not sure what's cause that but it's something about units.

I use a lettre paper as paper format (US Format so 8.5" x 11")
"1 inches = 1" was not working so i had to put "1 Inches = 25.4" and it was perfect.
(25.4 mm = 1 inches) so it's something about milimeters and inches units.

So now everything is perfect and work as intended.

Hope this can help if someone experiencing same issus.
