Please be aware that the original AskLO question indicated in comment #1 (which led to this bug being raised) was asking about geometry scaling between Draw and Writer. I am closing this bug as a duplicate because the present description does not reflect the original question but instead is a direct reflection of what is described in the related bug. 

If this geometry issue is still present in recent versions please open a new bug with a more accurate description of the problem. Thanks.
