Scale to Fit

    I need to be able to set a page area within a worksheet, and then output that to a single page PDF.

    This works fine if the print area results in a single page. But if the print area results in a multipage PDF, I cannot find any way to say "scale to fit"

    I've tried many things including setting FitToPagesTall/FitToPagesWide (completely ignored), various ways with the new printmanager class.

    But nothing works. Ideally, there should be a Scale to Fit option when saving the PDF

    Is there something I've missed?

    Actually, I figured it out. Consider this a case of bad documentation. Turns out that to use FitToPagesWide you have to make IsPercentScale false.

    Hi Tom,
    That's correct. If IsPercentScale property is false, FitToPagesWide and FitToPagesTall work. This has already been documented here:
