You may remember back in the day of Macintosh SE, System 6, ImageWriter, Claris Works and so on that you could print across several pages on a Macintosh and easily make a banner. That beautiful feature has been completely missing since OS X was introduced in 2001.
There is a way to print across multiple pages. Save your document as a PDF file, open it in Acrobat Reader (it’s free), and from there you can print it across multiple pages.
- Firstly, you need to download and install Acrobat Reader. You can download it from here.
- Next you need to save the document that you want to print as a PDF file. To do this open the document in any Application (Pages, Preview etc) go to the normal print dialogue, then from the bottom left ‘PDF’ dropdown menu select ‘save as PDF’.
- Now click on the pdf file that was just saved and select ‘Open with Acrobat Reader’
- In Acrobat reader when you ‘Print’ the document you will now see a will window that gives you lots of options. Select ‘Poster’ (not multiple pages!) and it will print over multiple pages!
