    Hello --

    I realize this is most likely a ridiculous question, but here goes...
    I needed to create a ruler -- yes, a ruler -- for someone in MS Word so that people could print out the page and measure things. I converted this file to pdf and the ruler prints fine, 10 inches exactly, as long as I set the print setting to "page scaling = none" in the print dialog box.

    While I know I can save settings for the conversion process, does anyone have any ideas how I might be able to connect the print settings to the file so that when distributed, recipients will be able to print without this ruler being distorted?

    Alternatively, does anyone have a better suggestion for this entire process?

    Thanks!

    The user has free choice of their print settings. You cannot remove
    this choice.

    You should probably include recommendations and clear instructions on
    the page.
