    If I had hair, I would have pulled it all out by now. I must admit that I find Sketch-Up just about the most frustrating program out there.
    Anyway. Once again I'm wanting to print to scale, but I seem to be including too much white space, because it wants to print a small template of 50mm x 70mm across 3 sheets of A4!!! How do I define what White Space is saved along with the Template?
    I've asked the question on Goo and not really found a simple straight forward answer I can use
    Additionally. if I click on Zoom Extents, the Template just disappears and I can't find it? When I've done this previously on another Template I've had no problems. What have I done wrong?
    Any help would be really really great

    Here is how I printed my templates. I never had an issue with the software trying to print a small plate over many sheets. Printable plate files

    the trick with printing to scale is to turn off the perspective view
    Camera menu, untick 'perspective'

    Thanks All.
    Couldn't get Ghostscript to work, so reloaded Sketchup 17 and this time the Layout section worked.
    After many attempts I got it to work well.
    Thank you for all the help, again
