    TILE Printing for free

    Today some of the free PDF readers will print large pages as tiles without having to buy or learn how to use a Tile Print type of program.

    I use Foxit Reader from FoxitSoftware.com and when you print there is an option box that says Tile Large Pages. Then the print illustration shows the page tiled.

    Also there is a "Custom Scale Option" You can set the scale size you want. So those that want to scale a plane to 90% can choose that. You can also print larger as well.

    When you choose Tile Large Pages you then have a zoom option that lets you zoom to the nearest tenth of a percent UP or DOWN.

    Sometimes the pages appear to be blank. Make sure if your printer has it, to select print all text as black. For some reason, when printing some scanned items certain lines are seen as a colour other than black. Telling my laser to print all text as black made all the lines and marks appear correctly.

    Even Acrobat Reader X does it now with the poster print option.

    I've never had any luck tile printing or scaling pages in Adobe. Every time I set it for tile print or I scale the page to the size I need, it prints to the default page size and it won't print in tiles.
    I've even tried several different versions of Adobe, from the oldest I could find that works with Windows 7 all the way up to the newest version.

    Yup, works fine for me. One of the best upgrades they've given Reader in ages...

    Check that its not your printer doing the down sizing. Use the " print at actual size" setting in the set up or properties page of the printer. Hope this is of help.

    I tried that too. I have even tried different printers with no luck. However, PDF Lite and Foxitreader allows me to print in tiles with no problems. It just seems for some reason Adobe is the problem.

    Thanks for the heads-up! Been looking for something like this. In my experience, the only thing Adobe does well is update itself.
