Let's say I have a document which is 30 inches by 30 inches. My printer is 11x17. I need to print tiles.
Let's also say that the printer is attached to a computer which doesn't have InDesign, but does have Acrobat, so I need to export my fie to a PDF in order to print to the printer.
How do I get a PDF which is made of tiles?
I can use the Print function to print tiles, manually or automatically. I can Export to PDF. But I can't figure out how to Print to PDF or save my print job as a PDF and have it come up as tiles. (I tried using the Save As PDF option and the PDF which was generated couldn't be opened; my Mac kept spitting back an error.)
Is there a way to do this from InDesign, or do I have to create a PDF with four identical pages and create tiles manually by cropping in Acrobat?
