Sprint Layout is the easiest software to use by far. I'm struggling to understand that you could not see how to print your work from within the program.

I try to print it but the result is so tiny diferent than I expected,any idea what must I do???

On the print screen at the left and bottom choice, make sure on Scaling you click next to 1:1. This setting is default, you must have changed it and that's why you see small.

Download and install Bulzip PDF. It's free and installs like a 'printer'.
Then when you print, select the Bullzip printer and you can select PDF, JPG, PNG, whatever. The result is a file in that format. You can then or later print it to a real printer on paper.

Edit: works with ANY program, not just PCB layout.

Send me your email. I put together a few years back a two parts article on how to make PCB. My email is bergeron.syl@videotron.qc.ca

I would suggest that you use the free version of Eagle PCB. It is one of the best, and a lot of design on this forum use it.

Bye.
