Poster Tool

i am trying out the poster tool (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/5682/poster.html) to split a large ps document containing one dinA page into a ps document containing 4 dinA2 pages. It does create the new file containing 4 pages, but I get the same part of the dinA0 poster on all 4 pages. Has anybody used this program before? Or does anybody know another way to slice large posters into parts?
I would really appreciate your help,


RE: Poster Tool

As far as I know, most PostScript processors don't really care if your document exceeds the paper size: the excess just doesn't show up on paper.

Thus, in theory, you can send the same document to the printer four times, with the appropriate translation of the origin, you will get the required document in four pieces.

Try it out, and if you have problems, post.
