Changes you make to options on this tab apply to the current page only.

Adjust to

Reduces or enlarges the drawing page to a specified percentage of actual size for printing only. If the drawing page is larger than one paper size, the diagram will be printed onto more papers.

Fit to (sheets across by sheets down)

Fits each drawing in the print job on the specified number of sheets across and down. Depending on the number of pages and the margins you specify, the drawing is enlarged or reduced. If the pages across and down are not proportional to the drawing's dimensions, only those sheets needed to maintain the drawing's proportions are used.
