HOW TO: Submitting a Plot (Poster)
Before You Design Your Plot
The first step in plotting is to set up the application page size. This is generally accomplished by selecting Page Setup from your application's File menu. In the page setup, alter the default page size (which is usually 8.5" x 11") to the size you want your poster to be. Click OK when finished. With the application page size set, you can now design your poster.
When You're Ready to Print
If you are ready to print your poster, choose Print from the File menu. Choose a plotter: either "CCIT Plot 36" or "CCIT Plot 42." After choosing the plotter, click the Properties button.
The next step is to set the custom paper size for your plot in the print driver. In Windows, you'll change paper size by going to Paper/Quality > Document size . Click the Custom... button. In the new window that opens, enter the size of your plot and give your new custom paper size a name. Note : You may have to rotate the desired height and width of your plot if the dimensions don't fit within the range allowed by the application. Click OK to save all your changes when finished.
The preview of your job should now show the correct dimensions. If you are satisfied with how your plot is setup, proceed to print your file.
