I hope 2017 is off to a great start for you and that you have lots of lovely projects lined up. I had a question from a customer today about printing ePatterns, and it led me to realize that Adobe actually doesn’t show a crucial part of how to use its Poster Print feature (which breaks up the full-sized ePattern sheets into tiles you tape together). I link to Adobe’s instructions for poster printing in my ePattern instructions, but even those don’t show this step! I’ve added a screen shot to the ePattern instructions to make this clearer and have also updated my ** you don’t have permission to see this link ** in the Tips section.
Here’s the screen shot (click it twice for the full-sized image):
** you don’t have permission to see this link **
Basically, after clicking File>Print, you need to click the Poster button to get going. I hope this helps! Adobe changed the way it does tiled printing after Adobe 9 came out, so changed all the ePatterns at that point, since it is much, much easier to print to tiles with this new printing method. I recommend Adobe Reader 11 or later (I try to keep to the latest updates so I don’t run into any glitches).
