I have a circuit diagram drawn inside a border.
The diagram takes up about a quarter of the border and prints that way.
Is there any way of increasing the size of the circuit diagram inside the border?

Rather than increase the circuit (the library parts are all drawn to a specific size) you'd be better off just deleting the existing border and drawing a smaller one. You can use the FRAME command to manually draw the page frame and then add additional text / lines to it for the other legends or you could use a standard frame from the frames.lbr, or make your own frame library, etc....

Best Regards,

Rachael

Thank you Rachael.
I am playing with that and discovered there is a smaller frame I can use FRAME_A_L It doesn't let the drawing fill the frame but it is a lot closer. Thank you.

Just for anyone elses benefit.
Thanks Rachael, I didn't know there was a manual frame.
I deleted the frame and left the title box intact.
I then moved the title box closer to the drawing and drew a frame around the outside.
Pressed file/print and altered the border to 1mm alround.
I then experimented with Scale factor and found this altered the size on the page, Scale factor 1.4 gave me a full page.
With the help of members on here anything is possible.
Thank you.

if you don't require/need to know a/the specific scale factor, just
set 'Scale factor' to something big and 'Page limit' to 1.

I thought I set it at more than 1.4 and got it outside the page?
I have just tried it again and set it to 1.5 and it fills the page correctly.
Even setting it to 8 fills the page correctly?
Thanks for the tip I will do that.
