One day, boss ask me to print a large poster scale chart which will be placed on the wall as a temporary announcement. I remember that spreadsheet application (such as LibreOffice Calc, OpenOffice Calc and Ms Excel) has an ability to scale print so i recreate the chart and print it with max scale (400%), next i tried to scale picture with it and its work like a charm.
The problem is, we don’t have a big size paper printer, so the print result is spilled into several pages. All i did is rearrange the paper into the billboard. For daily announcement this poster scale printing is really useful, old man with eyes problem can read it easily. If you wanna know how, here’s the detail.
I’ve found it easier and simple to scale printing anything you put on the LibreOffice Calc sheet like a Chart and Pictures or any objects you can print trough it. Please note that this scale not for regular texts and tables, because we have to adjust the Column width and Row height as low as possible to maximize the scaling.
