    Hey guys,

    Just wanted some advise on how best to format a large volume of text.
    I have a text file with a list just like:

    123456 rtyu.tghj.ghj
    098765 edfgh.xcvb
    34567 asdf.fgh
    etc.

    its a big list, 171MB of just solid list.

    I want to make a poster out of it and im wondering the best way to go about it.
    As I said its in a vertical list format but I will need it to go across as well and fill up around A2 page size.

    Any ideas on the best way to do this? obviously a crazy small font size, still just about legible though.

    thanks.

    You could do a bunch of columns across the page, or you could use "Find and Replace" to replace the hard returns with just a space.

    Oh, since you didn't mention the program you'd be using, something like InDesign would work best.
