Johnny, I do so appreciate you taking the time to read and reply to my post--and so promptly. I am afraid, perhaps because I am not very good at TurboCAD, that i do not fully comprehend your advice (and I did go back and read through the earlier thread in your conversation with WhiteRoom Skis).
Here is what I have attempted again this morning.
I have saved a 2-D (Front View) of my template in its own layer. I then select it and use the Page Layout Dialogue box to select the paper size and height and width Scale of the Drawing--See Page Layout View Attachment. As you can see, I have used the Height and Width setup mode and defined a paper size roughly equal to the full-scale size of my drawing. I have chosen 1-1 full scale.
I then went to the Page Set Up dialogue box and formatted my print options to "Any Printer" and selected a custom paper size (16"x60") to accommodate my drawing size with Scale set at 100%. See Page Set Up Dialogue attachment.
I then said "OK" and went to my File-Print Option and selected Print to .pdf. and saved the drawing. Now when I go back to open the .pdf file I saved in Preview, it is simply blank.
I have also tried exporting my drawing with all the above print options in place as a .jpeg. This works to save the image, but when I reimport the .jpeg back into TC, it is, of course, an image, but when I try to roughly gauge its size by measuring the "Verify Distance Point to Point", it suggests is is only 20" long when it should be almost 60". I am therefore assuming that it will not print out to proper size.
If you can point our to me where I am going wrong, I would greatly appreciate it. I think that my local printer will need a full size .pdf file to print out my full size template. As I said in my original post, I am trying to determine whether the latest version of TC Mac Pro will accommodate what I am trying to do. If it will, it is worth the price for me to upgrade.
