This is my first time using the site, and I've kinda got a problem. I've created a Word document with everything I want on it, and now I'd like to enlarge it by about 500x the size, or about 4 pages. I'm pretty good with word, but this seems to be out of my league. Any help? Do I need an additional program, or should basic Word do this, and I'm just looking in all the wrong places?

Thanks, Fianna

Okay, how do i enlarge both the document AND the text/pictures/arrangement? So far, my printer thinks i'm putting in a piece of paper that's 22" by 22", instead of printing it onto several pages. The print preview shows that my doc in the upper left hand corner of the 22" x 22", not spread out over it. And it still wants to print it on one piece of paper, not several. I haven't got a 22" x 22" paper, nor a printer that large, either.

(no kinkos near me)
Thanks, F

You don't unless you do it separately.
And what are you going to print to?
Word doesn't have a facility for printing to multiple pages---well, except vertically.

Printing to an Epson stylus 820. Not sure how i'm going to do this, but perhaps i'll try a different machine and program, a friend's. Thanks for the help.

I'm willing to take a shot at it for you...but I can't promise anything. And I'd probably end up sending you PDFs or JPGs or something. Nothing editable.

Excel will print the way I think you want. With a bit of experimenting you might be able to include your Word document in a worksheet and scale it up and print it across multiple pages from there.

Thanks! I'll try that before I give up. 'Experimenting' is something i can handle.
