I agree the print menu in CAD is a lot better than REVIT.  For instance, I really miss the print "window" option.

There are two ways you can print to a scale.  First is to change the scale of your view prior to printing.  This works as long as you do not have any annotations that will change size (relative to the drawing).

Second is to change the zoom percentage in the setup menu.  You'll have to calculate what the percent of change is from your view scale to your print scale.  Example:  If your view is at 1/4"=1'-0" and you want to print at 1/8"=1'-0", then you would change your zoom to 50%.  If it is anything more difficult than that, wait until you've had a couple more cups of coffee...

BTW... I'm using 2009

Thank you and i understand that.

question.. when i put a border in revit is it "Full scale" or is it scaled? I know I still think in autocad but after 15yrs its a little hard.. i think that is what is messing with me.

Q: can i scale the border in revit??

I am not completely understanding your question.  I am assuming that what you mean by border is a titleblock.  Are you printing from a sheet or a view?  Either way, if you change the zoom percentage (50% for example) it will scale everything that is being printed.
