SVG image in PDF export is not properly scaled


#1

Steps I took that resulted in the problem:

Create a new fritzing sketch.
Add a Silkscreen Image to the PCB view.
Export for PCB as PDF.

The silkscreen image isn’t scaled properly.

What I expected should have happened instead:

The silkscreen image should be scaled properly.

My version of Fritzing and my operating system:

Fritzing 0.9.2
Ubuntu Linux 14.04

Please also attach any files that help explaining this problem

Your forum software will not let me upload .svg or .fzz files

Seriously, that’s nothing wrong with your Fritzing version nor OS. It’s a common issue has been there and in other applications for many years. I guess it’s just nobody’s still figured out how to do automatic export to PDF clearly. You may consider as more convenient to fix the scaling with the code, but I do so through the editor, this one exactly https://4000a-125-2-form.pdffiller.com/ it is made for editing and filling some forms specifically, but toolset is pretty huge so it works out well for fzz as well
