I often do my design in A4 as the client don't know the final print-size. It would be nice to be able to export any document in other sizes as long as its the same filetype, but just bigger or shrinken

Only one of tons of questions:

  • If bigger: What happens tom your images’ resolution?
  • If smaller: What happens to your text size?
  • If bigger or smaller: What happens to the aspect ratio of your document?

For preview reasons:

On a Mac, go into the print panel, set an output percentage and choose „Save as PDF“ from the „PDF flyout menu.

Well I think for all vector (fonts and more) its a simple scaling. For bitmap-images you're right, but a warning about altered dimensions should be enough. Aspect ratio ain't relevant if its going up and down any A-format.

 

But great solution with the printing-hack. Thats useable :)

Think you don’t understand, what I mean.

You say because „you don’t know the final print size“ you want a scaled output. Really? It does no matter, how small/big your typo is? It does no matter, wenn the aspect ratio isn‘t maintained?

You may output a document for preliminary use, but definitely not for „final print size“.

I'd also like to see this option. I often prepare an A4 poster and would also like to export it as and A5 or maybe A6 as a flyer. I don't want to have to create 3 versions of the same thing. In the old PagePlus you could set a percentage size for the export, it just scales the document. I never had any reproduction issues.
