I've searched in T8's help topics and cannot find how to fix this problem.
I like to use UTM gridding with printed maps. Particularly 1:25K, 1:50K scaled maps. The problem is that I end up with too many grid lines "busying up" the maps. Some of the first ones I printed were perfect, meaning that the grids were comprized of squares that are 1,000 meters by 1000 meters. Here lately, I'm getting grids with 500 meter squares and I can't figure out what I need to do to fix this. Would be thankful for some pointers.
Well, now I have an intermittant problem. The gridding is just right, but I printed one and the USGS imagery on the map was blurry. Messed around with zoom levels (zoomed in, then back out) and printed a perfect map (grids right and topo info crisp).
It's kind of a pain because even though you have a "preview" of it before printing the preview is so small that you can't tell if it's right until it spits out of the printer.
Yeah, it's a pain. Thing is, I recall making several that were perfect in 1:25K, 1:50K. Even with the higher scale ratio on those 1:50K's I could use the magnifying glass section of my compass and read the numbers on the 100' elevation lines. Anyway, I have a couple of good 1:25K's. I'll keep messing with it till I figure out the 50K's.
