Hi Art, That is a good idea. The final will be delivered in PDF format.
The next question is - How do I generate a PDF that reads the different page sizes? When I print the file to a PS file, I have to specify the page size ( 8.5 x 11). When I distill and look at the final PDF, it has cropped the oversized page to 11 x 8.5. (Interesting that it reads that this page is landscape and not portrait, but doesn't account for the larger page size.) I also tested by just doing a Save As from the BOOK file, but the final PDF has the same output. Any ideas on how to preserve the different page sizes? thanks, Kara On 2/15/07, Art Campbell <art.campbell at gmail.com> wrote: > > Kara, > Are you printing the guide or delivering in .PDF format, or something > else? > Do the drawings have to stay full-size or can you reduce them, like to > 11x17 so they'd fit better? > > My first thought is to create an FM document template with 11x17 > pages.
