Making PDF with mixed page size

Making PDF with mixed page size

When printing books, the charts I've created are not letter size but usually much larger.
I have Acrobat 8 for printing the PDF. Within Acrobat there is an option: Choose Paper Source by PDF size is in the Page handling section. That option works for Printing the PDF but I can't see a way to do it within FTM. FTM needs the equivalent Page Setup as Acrobat.

Thanks,
RONC
I have FTM2012 on Win7 64x PC.

Create the book in FTM and Share it as a PDF. Save the PDF file

Now use the page controls in Acrobat to control the printing outside FTM

John,

Thanks for the response.

That what I have been trying but FTM seems to scale to fit letter size the larger pages.

Am I missing something?

Help please!!

Are you using the page set up controls in the RH editing panel?


Are you using the File>page set up in the text items?

John,

I hate being dense but what is RH? Right hand? If so, I have set the page size in the odd sized one.

Also I didn't mention that the odd page is landscape and rather large.

I think that you should use the "Print" icon that is in the upper right corner, of the Report, Chart and/or book. When the Print window opens select the Adobe 8 printer driver, and then you should be able to control things as you do when in Adobe 8 it's self.

David,

Thanks.

I am using the button in the upper right of the FTM screen for printing a book. Letter sized pages show in Acorbat or Reader as letter size but a page that is 96 x 11 is squished to letter size so the across dimension is about 1/10the of the size.

Each page has it's own size in the Page setup on the right line of icons by choosing the page size from the drop down.

It seems that FTM is not conversing with Acrobat.

I can print mixed sized from Word and Excel through Acrobat.

I'm completely lost. Has anyone actually done this before?
