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.
Sorry you are having issues with that.
What version of Acrobat do you have?
This only works on more recent versions. Adobe Reader 9 or earlier do not offer the tiling or poster option.

Can you let me know what version of Acrobat you are on?

In the video, he states these will print on 3 x 3. Are we supposed to cut our paper to this size? I’m confused.
Hi Lynn. It will print 9 pieces of paper total. 3 across the top, 3 down the side. It will look like this – https://imgur.com/a/HRFptdX
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!
Thank you for all your help. My question…How do you get the PDFs downloaded? I am on a Mac. Does that ma,e a difference? Once I get the PDFs, I can get it from there…
I’ll have my tech guy get in touch with you!
I’ll get my tech guy to help with this.
Hi Kristen, tech son replying here. I sent you a quick email with a video on how to download them. Sorry took me so long to respond I didn’t see your comment. :insert embarrassed face:

How are these put together? When laid out, they are larger than a poster board. Do you suggest to tape them together and then what?
