Publisher print to scale

  muserocks123 16:43 24 Apr 2008

I've produced a poster in A2 size in publisher. I want to print it to a4 to see how it looks etc... With a A4 printer it only gives me the option to print as tiles. Is there anyway i can scale it to A4?

I produce a quarterly magazine on A3. It goes to a commercial printers for final printing but when I click Print in Publisher, to see a copy, it automatically scales it to A4 for my laser printer. I dont know if its Publisher or the printer driver that does it. Have you tried just clicking Print?

in the end i just printed it at full scale through a pdf plotter and then printed through Adobe Acrobat, scaling in to A4.

Thanks for getting back to me

Use this method. Click File > Print > select Microsoft Document Image Writer > OK (make sure View Document Image is ticked at the bottom.) Click Save (selecting where you want to save it). When Microsoft Document Imaging opens you can click File > Print and make sure Print Options is set to Fit To Page.
I know you are sorted but might be handy in the future.
