During the lockdown in UK I’m trying to learn Layout.
Getting the hang of it, thanks to tutorials on learn.sketchup.com, but I’m stuck at one aspect - printing.
I have set up a series of A3 landscape page in Layout, properly scaled for a plan view of a theatre set design, and unscaled for a couple of perspective views.
I can’t figure out how to print the A3 landscape page onto two portrait A4 pages (the biggest my printer will print).
And internet search suggests it should be possible using Adobe Reader, but following the instructions doesn’t work, and I can’t see where I’ve gone wrong.
I need to preserve the scale at 100%.FKOS set.layout (4.2 MB)
Is it possible easily within Layout?
Or can anyone help me see where I went wrong in Adobe Reader? I asked it to Tile at 100%, but only a single page is printed. Or if I set the Printer to A4 Portrait in the System dialog,
and whether I set the Adobe Reader printer settings page to orientation to Portrait or Landscape, it will only show printing over four pages, all landscape.
Or suggest an alternative?
In the past, @DaveR helped me do it by setting up two separate A4 portrait pages in Layout then positioning the model differently in each page, with a small overlap and registration marks in the two pages.
But I’m hoping it can be done from the A3 landscape page itself.
If it isn’t possible at all, I’ll have to revert to the former method, and redo the Layout pages.
