Question of the week of May 31 – Printing a PDF file to Poster size

Question: I am trying to print a PDF file to a special poster printer and it is only printing 8.5 x 11. What is the problem?

Answer: First, you need to change your printer settings/properties to match the size of your paper. If you are setting it up for a printer at another location, you can have it print to an adobe pdf  file in order to change your paper size. You can add a custom setting in your properties and then make sure you select it before printing. (Sometimes you think you changed it but you really just added the setting and the printer is still selecting 8.5 x 11). Then make sure your page scaling is set for Fit to Printable area.
