Is there a program available that will allow me to print a pdf file of a 22" x 34" map onto eight 8 1/2" x 11" sheets?

Thanks

First you should extract the image, and then you can use an image splitter to break it up.

I use Some Pdf Image Extract (google for it), and then ImageSplitter (designed by BGG user FNH1).

And then you can use cutepdf to put it back into pdf form.

if you have photoshop or a program that can pull the image out of the pdf, then you could use this
