every plan have such bar as eg

shown here... its 1 inch, or 1 cm each square. Zoom your plans IN or Out till this fits when check measurement by a ruler.

When you print the plans, print the scale bar first. Measure it with a ruler to see if is accurate, if necessary, scale your printer adoringly. You may need to put in a number something like 102% to to make the scale print accurately. Your plans will be off if you don’t get the scale right.
