I'm exporting an afdesign file as an SVG for a machinist, but the export comes out just over 4 times bigger than the original.

Any ideas?

Can you provide some screenshots, or better a .afdesign file and exported .svg that demonstrate the problem?

Here it is in afdesign Draw Persona. I have added a red line which shows it is 213.7mm across.

Here is the exported SVG. I have added the same line, but as you can see it shows as 890.5mm across.

EDIT: What's even more confusing is I've literally copied and pasted that red line from the afdesign direct into the SVG with no modification and it fits perfectly. :S

Check the DPI in the SVG export screen and document

Looks like a 300/72 mismatch somewhere

OK, reducing the dpi to 72 worked.

It's a bit of an odd default. I would like to see at least a 'export to original size' option in a future release. 

Thanks for all your help. A pleasure as always. :)
