Embed scale in PDF files?


#1

Some CAD programs automatically embed a scale (i.e. 1" = 8’) when they export PDF documents. Usually if one is set on a document, Acrobat Pro’s measuring tool will pick it up automatically.

Is it possible for OmniGraffle to embed that scale when one is set in the Canvas Inspector -> Units?

Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion! That isn’t currently possible, but it would be cool. You can still set the ratio manually in Acrobat Pro if you need to measure using the steps at https://www.rockymountaintraining.com/adobe-acrobat-x-changing-the-measurement-scale/.
