Stays centered on page to print

I'd like tp have individual print outs of both seat and chain stays. Even though I've centered each on the page in BikeCAD they show up in pdf as low or high and to the left..

how can i change this?


Isolating auxiliary views of stays

It sounds like maybe you've zoomed and panned your view to focus on the stays. Doing this will have no effect on the exported PDF. The key to isolating one of the auxiliary views into a drawing is explained more generally at: bikecad.ca/fitting_the_titleblock. Setting up the title block in this way can take a bit of trial and error to get the spacing right. Once you've done it, it is worth saving the title block layout as a title block template. Templates are explained at: bikecad.ca/templates_in_bikecadpro. In the example below, I've isolated the seat stays by centering the title block border on the auxiliary view of the seat stays. As you can see, I've located the right edge of the border -1355mm from the front edge of the front wheel. The bottom edge of the border is located -490mm from the bottom edge of the wheel. Finally, the left edge of the border is located 65mm from the left edge of the rear wheel which incidentally is not shown in this view.

Notice I've selected a portrait orientation for this view of the seat stays. You'll probably want a landscape orientation for the chain stays.

Excellent! thank you!
