Hello, 

 

I have large pdf files that I want to print. They end up being 12 tiles/pages when printed.

 

When I use Reader to print them out with the poster option on my home printer, they are the correct size. However, when I use "print to pdf" instead of my printer, the resulting saved pdf comes out with no margin on the tiles. Then when I print this file using somehting other than Reader, it adds a margin which makes the content shrink. 

 

I want to "print to pdf" then get them printed at Staples or whatever but I want the "print to pdf" file to be the correct size. I have several of these files and it's not worth printing them at home. Maybe I could just take the full size files to Staples and figure it out there?

 

I hope that makes sense and thanks for any help.
