Art boards and changing page size

Recommended Posts

Greetings!  Something has changed recently concerning how art boards are printed.  Previously, to do a two sided page in one document, I would make a page sized artboard for each side of the paper, arrange them closely together and the document would print correctly double sided.


today I tried a older file that has worked with no issues in the past.  However now it is telling the printer it is a 11x17 document instead of a 8.5x11 one.  No amount of fiddling seems to rectify this.  This was tried from an iPad Pro, with the 1.9.2 designer app. Print attempts from both the designer app, and saved as a pdf and printed using an Epson app.  


any ideas what’s changed?

I hadn’t noticed what happened in earlier versions, but now when printing from Doc/print menu, multiple Artboards are treated as a single document and are resized to fit a single A4 sheet and printed as a single page on my Epson printer. Exporting same document as PDF and 'sharing' to printer still works correctly, (size and pages retained).
