How do you print specific tiles in a poster (not pages)?

I'm on a Mac with OSX 10.13.4 and need to print only select tiles from a scaled poster view. I

I cannot print normally, because the horizontal orientation of the document leaves the font too small to read. So, I have to do it portrait, but scale in poster mode. There are graphics that I don't need on some tiles, so I don't want to print those.

You can choose 'print to file' under "Advanced Print Setup, then insert the poster layout/sizing/scaling specifications and press print. Find the saved file after it 'prints to file,' for me this saved as a .prn file (not a pdf or jpg) - when you open it the pages will be laid out using the sizing/scaling you specified on the original file - now you can pick and choose the pages (individual tiles) of the poster that you want to print. I just figured this out after having to refill ink that started to fade at page 21 of a 36-page poster. Once I printed to file, I was able to restart the print at page 21. Hope that helps!
