Tiling will cut the document in a number of parts to prepare the document for various large format printing methods.
The document can either be cut by a defined size for the resulting tiles or by the number of tiles horizontally and vertically.
This function is available starting with pdfToolbox 9.0.
Define the settings
Using the Switchboard action, it is possible to define the size of the resulting tiles and the overlap. Additionally the construction direction vertically and horizontally can be defined.
An additional page with construction information can be added as well.
The construction information contains some basic information about the file and the number of tiles, as well as a sketch for the tile layout.
Information for overlap
If an overlap has been defined, a small mark to indicate there the next, overlapping tile has to be positioned will be added. Also the number of the actual tile will be printed into the overlapping area (which will become covered by the next tile).
Tiling by number
An additional way to tile the document is by defining the number of tiles vertically and horizontally.
The overlap can be defined in the same way as described above.
Using this action on the command line (CLI)
A separate CLI action is available for use on the command line.
The detailed description can be found in the CLI manual.
