I frequently use the models from existing databases to figure out what the original designer ( typically, a person long gone) was thinking.  Unfortunately, several of the DBs I've inherited are 200, 300, .., 700 tables in size and I end up with 3x3, 2x6 or even 4x9 panel where I adjust the placement in the model.

Once everything is nicely laid out, I'd like to print to engineering diagram paper at a 24" x 36" (or larger page).  Unfortunately, the print to PDF function presumes a US Letter format (8.5" x 11") format for all output.

How to repeat:
Try printing to PDF anything from work bench to a size other then 8.5" x 11"

Suggested fix:
Parameterize the output page dimensions
