I have a question about the 1 inch test square when you print from quilter's cache. I looked through the block of the month threads to see if I could find an answer to my question, but I couldn't find anything that cleared it up for me.
When I print out the pages, the 1 inch test squares are all different sizes. Now, I did read that you had to change your settings to print actual size. My settings are set to read "print 100% of normal size" and still my squares are turning out different sizes. I can see no other place to change the print size. It's not possible for me to print out multiple pages "until I get a match."
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to print out these pages properly?? I really want to do the house block of the month.
Thanks for your help gals!

Look to see if there is an option for "page scaling" and select none.

Depending on your printer software you may be able to go into the properties and change the Percentage of size to more then 100% or less depending on if the test square is larger or smaller then 1 inch.

When I go to print, I can click on the little arrow next to the printer icon at the top of my screen. When I do that, the option "Print Preview" appears. I click "Print Preview" and a new screen appears with additional options. In one of the boxes at the top it always appears first at 100%, but I can change that box to any number I want it to be. If I play with that number, the test box will always end up at 1 inch.

I had bad luck trying to print mine with my Firefox browser and with Google Chrome. It could just be me, but I had better luck with Internet Explorer. Make sure it's at 100%, change to landscape or portrait depending on the template, and definitely change the print margins to really small. That's how I finally got the farmhouse block to work.
