I have several large pdf of hobby file planes I need printed. I need a good tile ptinting program to print it in chunks on standard paper. Any suggestions.

I'm looking for the same thing. Nobody have any solutions?

I needed one too, and couldn't find anything. So I wrote one. It uses pdflib which puts in a watermark (unless I get enough donations to buy the license), but it works fine and I've used it for printing large instrument panels (40x25) on normal paper, then cut/tape together.

I like PDF for this because it the output print sizes are accurate.

Oh, and it's free. :) And Web-based, so it should work from Linux, Mac, or Windows. Or anything, really.
