Hi Ed,

I just answered your email, but anyway

These are some resources to convert your Punch plans
1 - You can export your scaled floorplan to DXF/DWG in most versions and Export to DXF/DWG with versions 7.x, and up --> DXF / DWG Exporter--> use a Cad program or Irfanview (is free)

2 - If you have a PDF writer, you can create your own scaled PDF files. Just follow this short tutorial
There are many free PDF writers, go to www. download.com and perform a search with the keyword "free PDF"--> You can create a jpg from the PDF or simply open the PDF with Photoshop Elements (File--> Import--> PDF image)
You can see a tutorial to convert Punch plans to PDF in this tutorial in my website

3 - Other interesting (and free) resource is the DWF conversion. You can download the DWF writer for free in the Autodesk page and it works in the same way that the PDF writer. The recipient needs to install the DWF viewer (it is free, and the printing companies use it)
You can see more info about DWF printing in this page of my website

Print Preview

When I call up a drawing in print preview they are invariably off center and therefore print the same.
How do I move drawings so that they print on the page (to scale) where I want them?

I have Home & Landscape Design Professional 2009
I am using XP Professional with latest updates
