I am looking for help using the snapshot tool and printing from a large size page. Specifically, I get .pdf drawings that are 24X36" (or larger) and since I don't have a large printer at home, like poster or blue print size,
I am using the snapshot tool to "span" a single page on to 8.5 X 11 sheets of paper. After selecting and printing, I tape the printed pages together to re-assemble a hard copy. I am able to select the area I want to print, from the Print pop up window, I use Print Range and select the radio button for Selected Graphic area, the problem is, every time I use the snap shot select tool, the selected area is never the same % size, therefore when I try to tape the two sides together, the lines don't line up well because each select of say the left and then the right side of the page are at a different % selection.
Is there a solution, work around or setting that will lock the selection to accomplish this?
This is using Adobe Reader version 9, not using Adobe Professional.
Are you making sure when printing that the scale setting is selected to none. That is not the default on my computer.
I changed/tested setting the Page Handling, Page Scaling: setting to None.
With this set to None, the following happens, the Preveiw: Composite window shows the overall area I selected with the Snapshot tool, however, there is a white box in the center of what I selected with the snapshot tool, and the resulting printed page is only the sub portion that appears in the white box, it does not print the entire selected area, like it does when I have either, Fit to Printable Area or Shrink to Printable Area selected.
Still looking for help on finding a solution or work around to this problem.
