In Printshop Professional. I created a project with size 5" by 7". I need to change the size (not the zoom display) to 4.875" by 6.25 " Is there a way to do that without having to recreate the entire project? Thanks David Wells

I found that the size of the project can be changed by doing the following. See where it says US Letter in my screenshot? I clicked the drop down menu and selected "New Edit" and was shown a new options window that allowed me to change the size of the project.

This does not solve the problem. It only opens a new different size work area not resize the current project. This is a HUGE issue. I have just finished creating a 18 x 24 project that also has to be printed in the 8 1/2 x 11 size. I find no way to take my existing project and duplicate it in the new size. This should be a simple setting but I have spent HOURS with no success. This is supposed to be a PROFESSIONAL product but it can not seem to do even simple things.

There is no automatic rescaling to another project, but you can print it to fit on letter size paper by selecting the Output Size in the print options.

Here's a screen snip.



Another option is to save as JPG and simply print the JPG to fit on letter size paper. Yet another option is to save as PDF. Then print the PDF using Adobe Reader's printing options to rescale to letter size.
I printed directly to my PDF writer to create my PDF so that I have a PDF to submit to a printing service.
