Printing options from answer printer

If I print card into rect based on page size and orientation. When I  
do this, Rev will auto scale the X and Y dimensions. Unfortunately it  
doesn't make it proportional so the prints can look distorted.

Is there a feature to keep it proportional or do I have to set the  
scaling myself?
