    I’m not sure if others with PC / Chromebook have the same problem, but I don’t have the option to change from “size” to “poster”. I can adjust the scale to 100%, but it will then just print 1 page of the upper left corner of the PDF, nothing else from the page.

      Hi Lynn. It will print 9 pieces of paper total. 3 across the top, 3 down the side. It will look like this –

      The final size after you glue or tape the 9 pieces of standard printer paper together will be 33 inches wide, by 25.5 inches tall.

      3 pieces of an 8×11 piece of paper in each of the 3 rows. Thanks for asking!
