    Hey guys. I searched through the archives here and found some relevant threads, but I'm still very confused and I can't seem to get this to work.

    I am trying to print out a 1" : 5' scale battlemap with grid. I am using the battlemap template within DD3, but I can't seem to get the scale factor right in the print menu... Can somebody hold my hand and walk me through printing to scale?

    And how does this relate to the tiling option below?

    All you need to do to print out a battlemap at this scale is to set the paper distance to 1" and the paper distance to 5'. Remember to include the feet/inches symbols ('/") to tell CC3 what kind of number this is.
    The scaling option should also be "Scale factor" and not "fit to page"

    If the battle map is larger than a standard sheet of paper (A standard A4 sheet is 297mm x 210mm, which means you can fit about 11 x 8 squares on it), you need to set up tiling as well. Input the data for as many shhets of paper you need, depending on the size of your battlemap.
