How to print large map in A4 size like "Tile printing"method where you can automatically divide large map into equal parts(A4) then join it later by pasting, i tried ATLAS plugin but it gives me different output, it divides the large map into A4 size but it has big overlaps in every A4 paper it produced.
If the layout paper size is big like
A0 size, you need to adjust the paper size under the
Composition Tab on Print composer to select the desired size:
When you adjust all element to fit the new paper size, export your map as PDF of A0 (for example), and open Acrobat reader and do the following:
- Open the exported layout
- Go to
Print -> Properties -> Select A4 size paper
- Adjust the
- Check the
Now you can print out the entire A0 size layout on multiple A4 sizes that each A4 page represents a portion of the A0. After finishing all printing process, you need to cut the overlapping portion using a cutter then merge all the A4 sheets.
You have to be careful when you cut, so you need first to check how the papers overlap each other.
