To get a PDF schematic, you simplly print to a PDF device such as Acrobat Distiller or PDF995 ( free download at www.pdf995.com ).

To get a picture in .bmp or .jpg format, you need to do a screen capture to the windows clipboard. You can then paste into any documnet.

The PDF print is the best method, because it gives the highest resolution image.

In both DXP2004 and distiller there are options to "fit to page" - you need to make sure that option is UNCHECKED. To get a true size document, you have to select paper size that is appropriate for the thing you are printing. If "fit to page" is selected anywhere, the schematic or whatever will be stretched or shrunk to fit on the paper instead of being real size.

I try yestarday evening to print in pdf. What I find :)
in File menu => Page setup => Scalling - must be "scaled print", scaling = 1

Only in this position I make pdf files 1:1 with original size ;)

Good luck ;)
