We have created a floor plan, using LO Draw with a scale of 1/8" = 1'. Now we want to take it to Kinko's (Fed Ex) and have it printed for about $4.00 per page. Problem is they cannot print it. A few questions:

1) What is the standard file format (description and file type) for professional drafting?
The AutoCad file formats should be supported: .dxf and .dwg.

2) Does LO Draw support this format?
Probably not.

3)  If not, is there a work around?
You might see if QCad can import your drawing format. I seem to remember that it can output .dwg.

4) Can I print multiple parts of the drawing onto 8.5" x 11.0" paper, then tape them together for a preliminary draft? (I know I can do the taping part, its the printing that is an issue :) )?
You mentioned .pdf. If you can get your file into .pdf, you can select pieces of a pdf file to print--at least you can in
AdobeReader. I don't know if any of the freebies can.

5)  And , finally, Does the PDF format fit into this issue at all?
See last answer.
