Scaling DW

Question:
How can I scale down a DW object? Why is the DW object Ruler inch size much bigger than a real inch size?

Answer:
You can scale a datawindow by switching it into print preview mode and then altering the zoom attribute. The zoom attribute is a percentage value. This can be achieved either through the dot notation or the Modify command.

Make sure the datawindow units in your datawindow source are specified as 1/1000th of an inch to make sure your datawindow is defined in inches. That way all measurements will be accurate to 1/1000th of an inch, and it will look correct against the on-screen ruler.
