    Hi i had a quick question does anybody know how you can enlarge a file so instead of scale 1:50 it will go to 1:25 the file is a pdf file.
    Every tip or guidance is welcome

    Hi, wm228! :)

    Import the file in a graphic program such as Gimp, Photoshop, CorelDRAW, PaintShopPro, InkScape etc., resize the image by 200 %, crop it into printable sections and save them as separate files. If the *.pdf contains vector graphics it is recommended to open the file in a vector graphic program (CorelDRAW, InkScape). That way the lines stay crisp and clean.

    If you would like to directly print the file in a larger scale you may use the poster print feature of Acrobat Reader.

    Here are some links which might be useful:

    Since this question pops up every now and then I'll be making a tutorial on that matter explaining the different ways using free software. :)
