    How to fill 8.5 x 11 sheet when printing PDF in Print View Mode

    ADVJB

      I need to print portions of a PDF file (converted from a 24 x 36 drawing sheet file) so that it prints on a 8.5 x  11 sheet of paper to some architectural scale (i.e. 1/8" = 1 foot). On the old (4:3) LCD monitor this was not a problem...I would select a zoom scale to fill the sheet as much as possible and print in landscape orientation, and that would fill the sheet with a printed portion of a drawing to a scale as large as possible and still be readable ( I am trying to get as much of the 24 x 36 original on one 8.5 x 11 as possible).

       

      However with my new laptop and its widescreen (16:9) display, doing this leaves a substantial amount of sheet blank, and I am forced to do a work-around by connecting the old monitor to the laptop.

       

      Is there a solution to this?
