I've been manual tiling large documents in a way that just seems so long winded to me – I'm thinking there must be a more efficient method?!
This is what I've been doing:
- Work out the print area of my printer (eg. If my sheet is A3, the printer can't print full bleed so the printer area will be slightly less than A3)
- Draw a box frame the size of the printer area
- Copy + paste the frame around the artwork to positions I want the tiles to be (eg. no cuts going through a key part of an image)
- Reposition the zero point around each of these frames and print each of these 'tiles' 1 by 1 as I go.
I know it's called manual tiling but it seems like there's quite a bit of room for human error here, and if you need to print something quickly it's a bit long winded!
Another thing I've noticed with manual tiling is that only the top left, bottom left and top right crop marks are printed, meaning unless you have a full bleed design you don't know where to cut the sheet on the right + bottom sides? Could that be because I have the overlapping margin set to 0?
