You did not cut the plan up into 7.5 x10 inch squares.
You skipped a step. that's your problem.
Your printer, on those settings, will print the 7x10 inch PDF documents just fine.

Adobe Acrobat has a tileing function that can cut a document
into any size pieces you want , but that's expensive.
I believe that there are other tileing programs available,
you'll have to look around.
Reader will tile, but not as well.
You can do it manually with a photo editor,
or Microsoft paint, but that takes a long time.

When you're done making the plans,
if you want to use a regular printer,
you must tile the plan first.
Make the tiles size 7x10 inch so it will easily fit
in the printable area of a 8.5x11 inch piece of paper.

I spoke with Scott, and he said he does all of the tile plans manually. So the reason you don't have to do this with rcpowers plans is Scott already did it for you.

I glad you figured out how to print your tiled plans.
