    Before Illustrator, I uesed Microsoft Publisher to make classroom posters¡KI¡¦m just a kindergarten teacher ;) When I would print out a poster in publisher on a regular, small-format HP960 DeskJet, the jobs would obviously print in TILE format, and than I would paste all the tiles together, which was fine for me. Okay so now I¡¦ve switched over to illustrator, and I am trying to pretty much do the same thing¡Kmake classroom posters. I know how to get llustrator to print out in tile mode but here¡¦s the problem that I¡¦m having-

    When printing out a large poster in ¡§tile¡¨ mode in MS Publisher, Publisher prints about an inch overlap all around on each tile so that when you are assembling the tiles together, you have a certain amount of slack with which to match up each tile¡Kyou can overlap a little.

    Jon,

    Yes there is a work around, but not a simple one. With your custom layout sized to the whole image (and printer margins visible, set guides witht he amount of overlap you'd like, then move the Page Tile to correspond to each guide as you manually print each page tile.
