Hi to get your image in other more "print focused size" go to viewport properties and change the SVG resolution - don't worry about aspect ratio - it will be kept according to your viewport size. To achieve presise scale (but 1:50000 scale is to precise for this map) you will have to match SVG to real print paper size in some SVG editor like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape.

Please take a look to this screenshot:

In future releases we will add function to set directly viewport scale in other option to pix size

The best way for downloading SVG for further processing is going to tool section (TOOL button on the left side), then selecting Export map for wikipedia and then Save SVG

How can I share this map on Sharemap website. Do I have to make it again as a public map?

Currently your map is available for everyone with a link, but only you have right to edit it. If you wish I can move it to public space. In this case everyone will be able to modify map.

Thank you for the information.

I have exported the map in SVG format but I see it is not scalable. SVG looks like a JPEG image. With zoom out function it blurrs a lot.

I like to have a clear image for printing.
I tried with Inkscape but I will try with adobe indesign too.

Maybe I have to prepare only small parts of the map. How can I make a selection of the map and give a different name. e.g. If I only copy one part in the correct scale and rename like sultans trail greece-turkey_Svilengrad.

Than I can make tiles in correct scale.
