Create a poster with pdfposter
You have a large format pdf file that you would like to print into a poster, but you are limited by a printer only capable of printing a smaller format natively.
The following example splits an A2 format input file (in.pdf) into A4 output files (out.pdf) with 5% overlap for tiling:
~$ pdfposter -mA4 -pA2 -O5 in.pdf out.pdf
-m Specify the size of the output media size (default: a4) -p Specify the poster size (defaults to media size). -s Specify a linear scaling factor to produce the poster. -O Image overlap percentage (default: 0). -S When Overlapping (-O), make the real poster overlap_percent smaller. -x shift the grid of pages horizontally (percent of the output page width). -y shift the grid of pages vertically (percent of the output page height).
