I’ve ‘Sent to Layout’ a Sketchup model viewed in parallel projection which will comfortably fit on an A3 landscape page.
I have only an A4 printer.
I can’t seem to figure out how to set up Layout to print the scene over two portrait A4 pages.
If I set the paper size in Layout to use the A3 landscape template, open the SU file, check Preserve scale on resizing, resize the Layout window so the model is all visible, then print to my A4 printer, it only prints the left hand half of the page.
If I set the paper size in Layout to A4 portrait, only the left hand side is highlighted in the Layout window.
If I add another Layout (A4) page, it just shows blank, rather than taking up the RHS of the original page.
I tried and failed to do it direct from Sketchup.
How can I most easily learn how to do this in Layout?
I vaguely remember reading a post using an option to ‘tile output’, but i can’t find such an option in :Layout itself.
Did it refer to printing to a PDF A3 landscape page, then printing that to A4?
I’ll try that, and see if it works, but I still wonder if there’s a way to do it in Layout directly?
[A LITTLE LATER]
Well, Adobe Reader doesn’t show me any options to tile output either. If I set it to output at 100% scale, it prints (to scale) only the ‘middle’ of the page using Autorotate to change from A4 portrait to landscape, and clipping off left and right edges of the model.
So I’m still stuck.
Any advice from experienced Layout users welcome - I have rarely needed to use it myself in the past, though I’ve had it for about three years, and only needed to use it for quite simple things.
