Tutorial: Printing a Banner
Open your PDF file in Preview to see if it looks like a banner, as in the screenshot below.
If it does, drag and drop your PDF file into the Tiler workspace, and skip to step five.
While still in Preview, click on "Tools" in the Menu Bar. Next, click on "Rectangular Selection" in the Tools menu. Use the cursor, which looks like crosshairs, to define the shape of your banner. Be sure to include some white space as a border around your banner content.
Next, click on "Tools" again and select "Crop". You will receive an alert regarding cropping a PDF. Click "OK" and your banner will be created.
Now save your PDF file and then drag and drop it into the Tiler workspace. It will look like this:
In the above screenshot your banner is centered on one sheet of US letter size paper. You will see a light grey dotted line just inside the edge of the paper, indicating the printable area for the printer you have selected in "Page Setup".
If desired you can change the page orientation by clicking on the "Orientation" button on the Toolbar.
By clicking on the "Add Column", "Del Column", "Add Row", "Del Row" and "Orientation" buttons on the Tiler toolbar you can experiment with the size and appearance of your banner. Each sheet of paper in your layout will be outlined in light grey, so you can see how many sheets will be required to print it. Below is the final version.
To print your banner, click on the "Print" button on the Toolbar to view the Print menu. Click on "Print" and you're done!
