    Hello - I would like to print/plot the patterns in 1:1 and need to send a pdf file to the printing shop. Using print image, I can only save the image as jpeg or png, I don't have the option to select pdf when I want to prepare the marker. If I use the "export" function and prepare a plot, I don't know how to arrange as in a marker layout. Could you advise or which tutorial I might have overlooked?
