Printing in 2D Views is always true to scale. Therefore you get a preview cursor with the size of your selected paper format, when the view content is too big and can not be printed on one page.
If you don't want this behaviour, there are two alternatives:
- change view scale in view properties dialog
- Press ESC while you see the preview cursor. With ESC the whole view content is automatically scaled in order to fit the drawing to the page format. That also means you have lost the predefined scale during printing.
