I open dxf file with maximun dimensions fits A0 page size.
I set A0 for document, open print preview and set scale 1:1 and move page to cover all drawing.
On printing I select PDFCreator.
As result I get only bottom-left part of drawing clipped in size approx A4 page.

may be you say me - how to print this file properly on A0 page?

I can produce right output after setting a0 page size in printer properties BEFORE printing and after strange position of document page: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1889899/4/lcad/a0_right.png

it works for me with the current git HEAD:

from master branch and 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT

Please test with those versions too. Also, your dxf file uses plotF flag for layers, while the flag is currently used in LibreCAD to make all lines infinite, and the whole layer be skipped when printing out.

I will continue to investigate though.

2.0.0 series handles printing properly here. need to test for 1.0.0 series then

I try to print with master from 10/02/2012 - vertical shifting is still present.

master branch 2.0.0 series?

I couldn't reproduce this, so, hard for me to track down this. I will review printpreview source code again.
