    Hi All

    Heres a little problem for you to ponder on.:)

    I'm doing a course the requires me to produce an A3 size mind map. I've done the mindmap using mindjet mindmapper but I'm unable to get the thing to print A3 size on my Canon MP970 A4 printer ( obviously, I know it only accepts A4 paper ). But I was thinking about getting some A3 paper and folding it into A4 size and printing the 2 halves separately. So to try with I thought about print 2 A4's and joining them together to see if its possible, but there is a gap between the two sheets so the lines dont meet, I've reduced all margins I can find to zero but to no avail. Also the print is really small and as such unreadable without effort.

    Mindmapper does export to pdf, jpg, Tif etc so maybe theres another printout program that may help.

    Any suggestions gratefully accepted

    .. Tony

    Make sure your printer supports borderless printing.

    If it doesn't, you won't be able to get rid of the gap.

    If it does, there should be an option in the printer's dialog.
