You can probably see the screenshot attached in your received email, but I see it is not kept, and stripped when posted back to the

This is the Brother large format printer I own and as you can see from within the software for the Brother (not the printer itself), lower right, you can see the choices I have from within any app I use, whether in Windows 7, or in my case and this screenshot, Ubuntu Raring 13.04, to select multiple pages for a large format image, document and so forth. This is using LO Writer 4.0.4, but as I said I can open Calc, Draw etc. with the same choice of options. Although covered and greyed out while my selection is open, I can also select the page order.

So although Regina used a different set/choice of words, possibly applicable to her make and model of printer, most modern medium to high spec printer software does have a choice somewhere in it's software settings, to do multipage printing.

Hi John,

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?

2) Does LO Draw support this format?

3)  If not, is there a work around?

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 can use the option "Distribute on multiple sheets of paper" in the second tab of the printing dialog. The printer needs no special setting.

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

Kind regards

Well I just opened a large format document in Writer and checked every printer that wasa letter/legal printer and I saw NO option like listed above. I use Ubuntu 64-bit with 4.0.4.

So, it does not work that wayfor my system.

I think one of my Windows drivers has the ability, but it is not in my Ubuntu system.
