Printing your Big Map to a Small Page

 

When working on a large map it is often desirable to print a draft on smaller paper for proofing. Likewise, you may wish to keep a smaller print of a map for a portfolio or other purposes. To do this without having to reformat the map layout:

  • From the File menu choose Page and Print Setup

  • UNCHECK the Use Printer Paper Settings box

  • For the Paper Size choose Letter (or 11x17 for larger maps)

  • Leave the Map Page Size as it was for the size of your map (11x17 or 36x48 or whatever)

  • UNCHECK the Scale Map Elements box

  • Click OK

 

 

When you are ready to print

  • From the File menu choose Print

  • CHECK the Scale Map to fit Printer Paper box

  • Click OK
