Fit Type: on Print Dialogue panel

Recommended Posts

In the Print dialogue if you have crop marks selected to print and you have the "Fit Type:" set to "Fit to Printable" or "Shrink to Printable" selected, the crop marks etc don't get printed.

The only way you can get them to print is if you scale the page to 90% (A4 document page and A4 print page).

This would be useful if the The "Fit to Printable" or "Shrink to Printable" options did this to include the crop marks, colour bars, page information etc in the printout.

InDesign has an option to "Scale To Fit" which will automatically scales the page to include the crop marks etc in the printout. 

Having this in Affinity Publisher would be useful, especially if you want to check that the bleed is correct, or you have an oversized page you want to check everything prints correctly.
