    Serif anyone. OK I know I am the only one who uses it but the PagePlusSE is free and you can upgrade for 10 bucks, not much out ther that will do that.
    Print to any size paper, remap over multiple sheets.

    In my opinion, it was the best $29.95 I ever spent. If you do a lot of larger patterns (which I do) it's invaluable.

    Hey Andy....didja get my e-mail?

    Rapid Resizer gets my vote too. It's got a free trial period so you can't go wrong. It'll get you over this hurdle anyway, you can play with it if you'd like and the registration is more than reasonable dollar wise.

    If you have Print Shop or a program like that you can print out virtually any size on multilple sheets of paper and glue/tape them together. Click print, output size, and enter the size you want. The down side of this is that it enlarges everything including the line size.

Any suggestions on how to print bigger patterns other than buying a new printer, plotter or going to a business to have it enlarged?
    Rapid resizer is my favorite for doing this though you do have to convert the pattern to a .jpg first. Microsoft publisher can also tile across multiple pages in any size you like by using the poster option. I believe Adobe offers a free print-me thing as well for doing this with .pdf files though I haven't played with it yet.

    Steve I use Rapid Resizer to print the patterns over mulitple pages that are larger than the sheet of paper.

    You can view some info on that here.

    I only have a printer that will run 8 1/2 paper but i can run longer lengths. I use whatever program to make my patterns then i will import it into coreldraw. once in coreldraw i will change my paper size to what ever size i actually want my pattern say 15 x 20 that would be my wood size. Then I resize my pattern to fit that page. we know it won't fit on paper so i had in some dashed lines to seperate some areas i know i will beable to fit onto a page. resize you paper to 8 1/2 and add some guide lines. I use the snap to option because it allows the pattern to stay straight when i print it. slide the pattern around until you have it all printed, steal your wifes scrapbooking slide cutter for straight lines cut tape and you have a very nice large pattern.

    Now I understand why you are trying to DIY. I'm only about 4mi to three places that I can use. Steve's recomendation is a good one. Hope you get it figured out.

    No probs, Steve. It did relate to pattern production but, as Todd pointed out, it wasn't really about patterns as such. This thread will be happier in a new home amongst its own kind and perhaps it might meet a loving partner and we'll have a nice wedding which will, in time, spawn lots of other little questions about printing.

    Thanks Gill. I thought I put it under the pattern portion but between fat mouse and spiked tea I guess I missed slightly. LOL

    Quite right, Todd. I hadn't spotted that this thread would be happier in a different home - I'll move it to a more appropriate spot now .
