Poster Printing: Acrobat on Mac/OS X

The following are instructions for printing posters on a DiscoverIT Plotter using Max/OS X in Adobe Acrobat.


  • Two poster printers are located in the hallway near IT.
  • You must use one of the computers in the hallway to print to the plotters.
  • The maximum paper width our printers can use is 42".
  • If you have trouble printing or need additional paper, please enter the IT room and someone will be happy to assist you.
  • The printers warn very early about being low on ink. We monitor these levels and your poster will still print correctly.


  1. Open the file

  2. Go to File --> Properties

  3. Make sure that your poster is the correct size. If it is not, you will need to resize it.

  4. Go to File --> Print (⌘P)

  5. Make sure that "Fit" and "Auto portrait/landscape" are selected, and "Choose paper source by PDF page size" is deselected.

  6. Press "Print"
