You need to change which boundary you are cropping the PDF to, when you open it. Use the options in the menu that is presented to you, when you initially open the PDF.

I would suggest using Illustrator for this. I do this whenever I manually need to tile graphics of different sizes. Example: Say my Blueprint is 17" W x 22" H (4x 8.5x11 sheets) I would create multiple Artboards of 8.5x11 with no spacing. Then place your PDF, File -> Place. Make sure "Link" is checked.

Based on Andrew's and joojaa's comments, the current work-around (since PDF seems to be incapable of this unless maybe one starts putting some clever JavaScript in it) consists of creating the PDF, then preparing the print job but using the print to file feature in order to generate a PS file containing the correct printer settings. Now whenever the printout ...
