I used to live in the UK and I've run across this one before ;)
Infact ANSI A paper is .6cm wider and 1.8cm shorter.....
This is what confuzes me. If this was the problem the diagram should be to
narrow and too long... not too wide. however this may be why I always get
a blank sheet of paper with every print.
Also when I change back to A4 (Page setup appears to have paper size
support) the problem is still there (I'm using GhostScript to view)!
And landscape mode is totaly whacked out no matter what the size..
I'm wondering if this is a Dia thing or a Win32 Dia thing.

My current tactic is to eport to PNG...
Not very handy but it works for now...

Thanks for the thought ;)
