Setting up your page size is best if you use your Printer Setup a use paper that your printer is designed to use. This dialog box ensures that your paper is the right size for your printer, but you can cheat with this dialog box by changing the scaling setting. In this image I have set the page size to A3 with the scaling set to 50%. Vectorworks will treat this page as an A1 page.
