Chart printing

Recommended Posts

I posted a few weeks ago about chart printing and I'm still having problems.  I'm running TMG 9 on a Mac using Parallels.   I've created a descendant box chart containing 104 people spanning seven generations.  When I go to TOOLS>DIAGRAM>RESIZE I learn the chart is 92.35 inches wide and 11.81 inches tall.  I have several options to save the chart as a pdf, but none of these options permit me to adjust the paper to these dimensions.  

1. Print to PDF (Mac Desktop) lets me use the Postscript Custom Page Size option to adjust to a maximum of 17W by 36H

2. Microsoft Print to PDF does not let me access Postscript Custom Page Size

3. QPDF Creator lets me use the Postscript Custom Page Size to a maximum of 78.7x by 78.75

4. Wholly Genes PDF Writer v4 does not let me make any adjustments.  

I'd like to have it printed commercially in a large, single page format.  I can save it as a bmp but I understand the finished product would look better if run from a pdf. I've left most of the default chart options as default.

What am I doing wrong?
