    Ok here's the deal:

    I have made a custom template in MS Publisher, it's size is equivalent to a horizontal A1 page, 840mm long and 59,4mm high. Or 8 A4 pages

    That's all fine and dandy, my layout is starting to take shape and I'm in a pleasant mood :D

    At one point me and the guy working on this agree that: hmm, maybe we should see how this looks when it gets printed out. Publisher has a function that will tile images, to large for a single A4, onto several pages. That was our original intent.

    Up until now everything is cool runnings:brrr:, but then; lo and behold the margins are all crazy, publisher has decided that it needs at least 10 pages to print out?? We try a different printer: 15 pages, we try CutePDF almost there, but still with crazy stuff going on.:wallbash:

    In short: I have a layout on an A1 template i MS publisher, which I would like to be printed on 8 individual A4 pages.

    On my A1 layout, I have tried to make sure that my text and images will stay inside 8 A4pages ,so as not destroy my stuff.

    I need some help before I die from stress and hypertension:waah:
