Re: Printing General Notes to a Plotter

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I used to print Excel documents on 24x36.
 
For now, try importing in Excel.

I often import them as an object into AutoCAD, arrange them as necessary and then plot as usual.

Subject: Printing General Notes to a Plotter

We have our General Structural Notes nicely laid out in Word so that we can customize them for each project.  Trouble is, we have not found a way to satisfactorily print them on 24x36 sheets using our HP Designjet plotter.  I say "satisfactorily" because Word thinks the biggest paper made is 22x22--so we can fill up about 60% of a 24x36 sheet, with some adjustments to margins, paper orientation, etc.
 
Importing the text to AutoCAD is an extra step, and we lose all the formatting--indents, bold, etc.
 
Has anyone out there discovered a way to print to a full 24x36 sheet with their word-processing software?  We would even buy something besides Word if it would work (although Corel's WordPerfect 9 has a similar paper size limitation, so I am not too hopeful).
 
TIA,
