If you know what the original WS is just figure out what percentage you need to increase or decrease it to get your desired size. Then when you go to print the file go to "poster" check off cut marks and labels and there should be a box you can enter the scale size you want and then hit print.

OK using Adobe acrobat or reader installed on you computer
1) Click on the PDF drop box arrow and open
On the small printer box make sure its set to 100%
2)click on printer logo on top left (of my adobe version screen)
You will open another screen of print control
3) click on sided print and click ok
4) page sizing and handling click POSTER
5) make sure tile scale is 100% and overlap is 0.005in
6) make sure its in portrait
7) click print
Et voila

That is what I said in the previous post, it isn't Adobe tiling the file it is your printer software. You could do the same thing to a picture using Paint and create a huge poster of it.

Really?
I like the way if you increase or shrink the plans you click the print button once and it shows you the reconfigured tile format showing sheet count for selected paper size

Yep, the only calculation you need to do say if the plane comes with a 30" ws and you want 40" , you have to figure out the percentage and just the same if you wanted a 25" ws.
