Hi all - I’m back with an exporting problem.
The page Im exporting is a sewing pattern which is going to the printers. It needs to be 90cm wide because that’s the maximum size of the paper. I’ve set the canvas to 90cm wide and I take a rough guess at how high it needs to be to fit all the pattern pieces onto the page. I guessed 500cm, but in fact when I put all the pieces on the page, it needed to be 750cm to contain them all. I adjusted the canvas height to fit. Essentially, I can’t know the height of the canvas until I’ve laid out the pieces.
Although the info pane on my macbook’s PDF viewer says the canvas height it 750cm, the printer says he’s only getting 500cm - ie it’s the height I originally set the canvas before adjusting.
It looks from the documentation that Gravit exports PDFs at the first canvas height which is set - you need to upgrade to Pro to be able to adjust it. This is pretty annoying but I understand some things have to be held back - but I wondered if there is a workaround. So far I’ve tried copying all the objects, opening a new document, setting the canvas size at 90cm x750cm in advance - but it doesn’t look like that’s worked either. Any thoughts?
