You may remember back in the day of Macintosh SE, System 6, Apple ImageWriter, Claris Works and so on that you could print across several pages easily and make a banner. That beautiful feature is completely missing from OS X, even though we are now up to OS X version 10!
There is a way to print across multiple pages though. 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 just 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 ‘Multiple Pages’ and it will print over multiple pages!
