It would be excellent if a large drawing could be printed at scale 1:1 across several sheets of paper, some call them "tiles" in this respect, that could subsequently be fastened together thus forming a large paper template.

I recently found that MS Paint in Windows can do this, but being able to do it all in CamBam would be better.

All graphic design program I've used have the option to print tiled pages, some of them print even register marks to help stitch the sheets together afterwards.
Didn't know that MS Paint has it which makes me think that maybe there is such an option in the Windows printing API.

A while agothere were an UNix program proted also to windows, where you could print a Postscript File (even a PDF if I didn't go wrong) with some "registry marks" on the side of the paper permitting to gluing together, several sheet to make a bigger sheet. I have used it to make 70x100 cm posters out of A3 paper.

It debian the  package is called "poster" and there is also a "pdfposter" package.


This is an article of a simila approach with some commercial programs.
