  1. Hi, just tried to print out the soft toy ebook but it is only printing out every other page because the page size is took large (looks like you’ve put them on A3). How do I get it to print the right hand side of the page? Also how do I manage to enlarge the pattern templates by 200% when that means that won’t fit on an A4 page? Sorry if I’m being silly but I can’t figure out how to do it (I’m on a Mac).

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    Kind regards

  2. You should have an option to ’tile’ or ‘scale’ when you print and then select a size. If you’re viewing the ebook in Adobe Acrobat, select ‘Poster’ and then enter 200% in the ‘Tile Scale’ box. The templates are larger than A4, so will print across numerous pages and you’ll need to stick them to together to use.

  3. File does seem to be set up for A3 size. I cannot print the right side of the pages in the e-book. It is printing only the 19 pages on A4!

    I am not even at the template printing stage yet.

    Can you help please?

    p.s. I bought the Gerbera Giraffe and it seems to print correctly.


  4. The PDF has been set up to print as individual A4 pages, but if you open it in Adobe Acrobat, or a similar PDF viewer, you should be able to select to print multiple pages together on a larger paper size.

    The templates need to be enlarged by 200%, so you can either print these pages at A3 size or tile the templates over multiple A4 pages.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you’re still having issues with printing.
