    Trying to increase size and tile a print.

      Hello,

       

      I have a file with the artboard being 8" tall by 36" wide. This is 1/10th the final size (its going to be a huge wall mural where 1" = 1'). Anyway, to get an idea of what the text size will look like when printed full size I have been printing off portions of the file at 1000% increased scale and then tiling and taping the papers together. It worked perfectly until I saved the file as a PDF (at the artboard size of 8"x36"). Now, when I load up my original AI file and try to scale, tile, and print...I cannot. The TILE option is completely greyed out, unselectable.

       

      Does anybody know why this is occurring? I have closed and reloaded AI and am working on a Mac.

       

      Thanks

      Chris
