   Set up the page to A4, scale the diagram to fit in the page breaks for A4

   One more bit of practical advice.  You are a supplicant here.  You really

   I doubt I will feel encouraged enough by your attitude to discuss the use

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be negative, just trying to work out how to
print diagrams directly from Dia onto A4 paper.

I must admit I have hit this problem before, Dia is a lovely program
and I use it quite a lot, but the difficulty of just creating a
diagram and *printing* it sometimes spoils it.

For creating diagrams that go onto web pages and similar it 'just
works' I agree with you.
