In Illustrator, how do I set my file at 10% scale?

I have a large print job. The design is sized at 36″ by 72″ with 1″ bleed. The printer is asking that I set the file at 10% scale. How do I do that???

Answer

This is very simple to do:

  1. Open the Transform palette
  2. Lock the width and height
  3. In the W: input add “/10” (after the current value in the box in mm/inches/etc).

This will divide the value by 10 and will therefore downscale everything to 10% of its original size.
