    ok I'm in a situation where I'm making HUGE maps like the one I'm working on is a Major City and its map Size is 6000x4800.if i print i get this on 1 page and you cant see anything. so is there a way in cc2/cd2 to print 1 map automatically on say 4 or even 9 pages for example. i don't want to have to say choose print view then move over and print view again. is there a fast way of doing this so it breaks up the map for you. secondly whats a good size for an 8.5 x 11 sheet ( 850x1100 or something?)

    691 x 864 = 8.5 x 11

    I think I read somewhere that 10% was enough overlap to be able to link a city up..

    The tricky part is eliminating as much of the margins as the printer can handle.

    Also, getting the viewer to quickly load and not crash or print blank pages when I print them off at work when the boss isn't looking.

    Check and see if your printer can print without 'margins' or 'borderless' which is what my printer can do. I have an HP 6980 Ink Jet, it can print both sides or print borderless.

    The problem with borderless printing is if the paper is not perfectly aligned some details will dissapear into the interior of the printer as the paper comes out skewed. I have had this happen a couple of times on my Epson.

    Wouldn't it be nice if the price of large format printers dropped to reasonable levels.
