I have a file that is 22" x 7" (approximately). In Acrobat I can't seem to get the file to print on the proper axis. Doesn't help that there are 2 places to set the Portrait or Landscape options within the standard Windows 7 Print Dialog.
Within InDesign I managed to get it to print the proper axis (the InDesign printing dialog is way better than Windows but still amounts to trail and error printing, thus wasting paper).
When I set the paper size to D it doesn't want to cut the paper where I need the cut. It wants to "print" the entire D (22x34 inches).
Anyone have any experience with this? I am using an HP DesignJet Plotter. To be honest the Windows 7 Print Dialog boxes don't appear to be any different than the Windows 95 print dialog boxes. LOL
When I print to our DesignJet 800 or 510, in the In Design "Print" dialogue box I click on "Setup" (lower left in the print dialogue box). In the "Print" dialogue box there I select "Preferences". Within that box (mine defaults to the "Paper Quality" tab) I select "Custom" and set the dimensions there (and click "OK"). Then I select the "Effects" tab and select "Actual Size". I usually make the paper dimensions a couple of inches larger than the finished size. Then when back at the In Design "Print" dialogue box under "Marks and Bleeds" I select just the "crop marks" box. When it is printed, I trim it to size using the crop marks.
Hope this helps.
