    Im trying to print some large 1 page PDFs that are 17"x22" as 4 separate pages. Here is one of the PDFs http://migunofasheville.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/jan2007.pdf I've managed to get it to print the top left of the document as a separate page, but can't figure out how to print the other 3 pages. In the print dialog the top left of the document is highlighted in the preview, but there doesn't seem to be a way to change the highlighted section.

    From searching around It appears I need tiling which is only available in Acrobat Pro, but I don't feel like spending $449 just to print some PDFs :) Is there some way to do this with Acrobat Reader 8, Preview or some other 3rd party app?

    Tiler

    I was looking for something like this too. Apparently Tiler should take care of that job. Haven't used it myself (yet).

    BTW, if you're looking for Mac software of any kind, I Use This can tell you what's out there to do the job you want to get done. ;)

    Yes, Tiler works great. I needed to print banners as large as possible on 11x17 paper, and Tiler did it perfectly! Props to Tiler.:apple:
