I haven't spend a lot of time with the printing code, so I may change my mind about some of this after I spend some time on it.

- Assuming one has chosen the wrong Page template, is it possible to change it so the page can be printed at 1:1? (for example, I tried A4, but that won't print at 1:1 on 8.5x11 paper either.)
The code queries the printer for paper size. If your printer has US Letter and your template is A4, the scale will be off a bit (and cropped too, at least on my printer).
- Is it possible to force it to print at 1:1?
as far as I can tell, if the template and printer use the same size paper, the result is 1:1.
So far, what I've seen is the Page is always adjusted to fit the paper size reported by the printer. I've not been able to find out how to get it to print 1:1 and trim what's out size the printer reported area.
- Is it possible to move ProjGroup (and the views/dimensions contained) between pages? (i.e. I now have a perfectly dimensioned drawing on a blank A4 and want to move it to another page size.)
somewhere in the wiki, there is a statement that cutting and pasting TD objects doesn't work well. I've never looked any deeper to find out why. I think there must be references that need to be updated when the object is pasted.
I can see this being an issue.
But, in addition to the case I mention, there is also the case where the views are dimensioned and you decide to add another view, possibly aux/detail view and the chosen Page size is too small. Having to re-dimension all new views could be annoying.
- When you insert a single view (rather than a group), is there a way to set, for example, the top view to align vertically with the front view? (Like they do in a ProjGroup.)
The X & Y properties of an ordinary view represent position of the center of the view on the page. So if view1.X == view2.X, they should be aligned left/right and if view1.Y == view2.Y, they should be aligned up/down.
Note that this doesn't apply to Dimensions, ProjectionGroup Items, etc. This X/Y for these is relative to the parent view.
Ok, I'll have a look at that.
