I was given a large 42 feet by 4feet document that has various vector shapes and text.  They would like it to be split up into 7 feet sections for a total of 6 sections.  These will be printed as separate documents and then put onto 6, 7 feet boards. 

Unfortuanatly I am rather new to illustrator so I do not know the appropriate way to do this.  I have tried the knife tool but I can't separate it from the main image into a new one at the correct size.

I would think would be a way to set it up to give the printer the entire document and somehow in the document set it up to print 7 feet sections.

Any help in this matter is truely appreciated.

 

thank you!

Instead of one large artboard, try to put the artwork on 6 artboards next to each other and print each artboard seperately.

Talk to the printer about this.
