    Question How to in-large a pattern in Adobe Reader

    I have a pattern that says to inlarge 133% . The patterns opens in Adobe Reader. What I did was go to where the box has the size i changed the size to 133% and hit enter. Then went to Print and put the dot in Print current view. It prints the original size.. Anyone know how to do this or can tell me what I am doing wrong?? I really need to inlarge this today... Thank you in advance .

    The enlarge you did was simply for viewing the pdf in Adobe Reader. In order to get the pattern the correct size, you have to change the size when you go to print the pattern. Your print window should offer options such as print full size, size to fit [paper] or you may have to choose something like 'advanced' or other options, which is where you would enter the 133%

    Often the print option to enlarge isn't available. In this case, print it at the default size and then use the printer to make a copy at a larger size.

    I was not able to enlarge a pdf on my brother printer.. What I did was print it. Cut it out then copy that to 150%
    I work great. Hope you can do that to.
