I would like to print an 11x17 chart using an online service. Can anyone recommend a service. I know of kinkos, but they don't support Macs.

Mac OS X allows you to print to a PDF file. Kinkos LOVES PDF files.

1. Make certain that your Page Setup is set to Tabloid and that the orientation is correct.
2. Be certain that when you're asked to save the file it has the required .pdf suffix (at the end).
3. Check that your PDF looks correct by viewing it (double click the newly created "print" file) in either Preview (which comes with OS X) or Acrobat/Acrobat Reader.
4. Burn it to a CD.
5. Drive the CD over to your local Kinkos.

Darryl, Are you a descendent of Jonas Watson (1636-1663)? Maybe we are cousins. Take a look at my web site at: http://homepage.mac.com/janmobley/home.html

Tim Lundin, who's been a member here for many years and an avid Reunion user, has a great plotter and has set up a small business --- primarily to print charts for us. I have some he did for me that are over thirty feet long === and look fantastic. You can't beat him for either price, quality or intimate knowledge of Mac's and Reunion... Talk to him!

PS That's odd about Kinko's. They used to be 100% Mac!
