I want to print a map to scale on 11x17 paper. I understand you can change the scale bar to 'numeric' in print composer, and then set the scale under properties for the map.
What I want to know is what units those are, and how to change them. I want to print at 1:4,000 (one inch = 4,000 feet), but when I do that it is wildly off, showing something closer to 1:300(?). Everything is in EPSG 2229, which I understand to be in feet. My page properties have the paper size set for A3.
What am I missing?
