I bought an excellent(but cheap-inexpensive) HP printer and am curious to know how to print in "A4"/ I look on my settings and all it says is "letter". Will my plans be messed up if I just leave it in the default mode and just hit print????

Look at the paper in your printer. A4 paper is 210 x 297 mm (8.27 x 11.69 in.) Standard paper in the U.S. is 8.5 x 11 in. I think (but i'm not sure) that RCPowers plans will have both an A4 option and an 8.5 x 11" option so depending on what paper your printer uses you can print either version.

EDIT: I looked at how I print plans and when I open the pdf and tell it to print (ctrl + p), I can select the paper size and then it places the tiles accordingly in the pdf. Not sure if that adresses the problem you're having but you should be able to select the paper size your printer uses when you print the pdf.

The tiled plans are actually 7.5 x 10 inches to allow for a variety of margins. So just tell your printer to do "100%" size and it'll take care of making sure the plans are placed within the pages print area.

Thank you very much!
