printing an oversize poster (20 X 30) - 7/7/2007 9:10:34 PM

How do I make a large poster from 4 sheets of paper in my home computer? Is there a way to set it up so that one corner of the graphic is on each page, so when I tape them together it is a whole picture?

I took the following right out of Print Shop HELP. The Print Shop lets you print oversized projects on multiple pages that you can assemble into a large final print, or in its original size, if your printer can handle oversized projects. 1. On the Design Desk with your project open, click the Print button on the Standard toolbar or choose Print from the File menu. The Print dialog box displays. Note: Options in the Print dialog box vary depending upon the type of project you are printing. 2. Click Output Size. The Custom Print Size dialog box displays. 3. Do one of the following: a. Type the number of inches for width in the Inches Wide box. b. Type the number of inches for height in the Inches Tall box. c. Type a percentage of the size relative to the original project (100 percent) in the Scale box. When you type changes to one of these boxes, the others adjust to maintain proportions of the project. 4. Type the number of sheets of paper to use either to accommodate the width in the Sheets Wide box or to accommodate the height in the Sheets Tall box. Note: To ensure that your project fits on the same page, change the Sheets Tall box to 1. The Print Shop adjusts the dimensions in the other boxes to maintain the original proportions of your project. 5. Click Show to update all the fields to the correct proportions, according to your changes. 6. Click OK in the Custom Print Size dialog box to return to the Print dialog box. 7. If you want to print just some of the tiles, or portions of each sheet, click Which Tiles. The Tiles to Print dialog box displays. 8. In the Preview area, click the tiles on each sheet that you want to print. 9. Click OK to return to the Print dialog box. 10. Select other checkboxes and options, as appropriate to the project you are printing. 11. Click Print. The project is printed.
