ExportToDisk as PDF scales report


Hi all. I've developed a little system service using Visual Studio pro 2008 with CR 2008 Basic for VS2k8 that shall export a small list of reports as PDF files at night.

When I open the reports in Crytsal Reports 9 the reports are shown correctly, when I export them as PDF using CR 9 all is fine.

Using a little .NET WinForm developed with VS 2008 showing the report within the viewer component and then exporting the report to PDF works fine also.

But... exporting to PDF using the .NET system service results in a down-scaled version of the report (might be 90-92% of its original size).

Would be no problem but some elements in the report loose their original position so the exported report doesn't look like the original and I've to fix that!...

Any idea why the report gets scaled when exporting it from the service but looks fine when being exported by a viewer component?
