How do you avoid a component being spread across more sheets than necessary?

Printing a plan from Outerzone, I used 'Poster Format' as the site recommended, so the A4 sheets could be joined easily.
Is there a way of doing this pre-printing, rather than printing 'as is', taping all the sheets together and photocopying each part?

Have you selected a centre image option on your printer?

Try downloading and using Foxit PDF Reader, Its a much better reader than Adobe and you can de-centre a tiled print to reduce the output.

In Adobe Acrobat Viewer...
Select [EDIT] from the top menu
Select [Take a Snapshot]
Select the area of the drawing you would like to print with the mouse
Select Print or via keyboard [Control P]
And then obviously make sure its printing at 100% in poster mode.
And Bob's your uncle..... Very handy for selecting small bits of the drawing to print on single bits of paper for templates etc. Also you will find that that you can get away with only printing parts of the plan.

+1 for GrahamC's method, that's how I do it also.

Great! Thanks everyone, I'll give GrahamC's method a go, and if that doesn't work, I'll take Martyn K's advice download FoxIt.
I'll be back with the results.
