Using Finale 2014.5 on Mac OS X 10.11. I have an Epson Artisan 1430 printer that can print on 11x17 paper. I would like to print 2 pages on one 11x17 page. I have tried several different ways to do this, but cannot get it to print at the same size as a single 8X11. Whenever it prints side by side, it scales down to a smaller size. I've tried scaling up above 100%, but eventually it starts cutting off the end of the staves before it gets to full size. There are so many ways to affect print size; through Finale page setup, Finale print page, OS X printing, creating PDF's. It's like there are margins on the Epson that can't be overwritten. Even though the printer does borderless printing. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

For anyone following this, I figured it out. Here's what I did: deselected the option in the Save and Print preference; in Page Setup I identified the printer, paper size and chose landscape as a layout; in the print dialog box under Finale 2014.5 I chose 2-up and ignore printer margins for n-up printing; under Layout I chose 1 page per sheet. Some of these options may be sound obvious to some, but clearly I was having a problem. BTW, this applied to any file I tried to print, so wasn't a specific file issue.

Up to the v25 release: in File > Page Setup choose A3 and 141%.

Print>Layout   2 pages per sheet.

If there are more than 2 pages then you need to add blank pages up to multiples of 4 then in page range: 4,1,2,3 or   8,1,2,7,6,3,4,5 etc

 

Unfortunately v25 doesn't seem to work like this and I am in an ongoing discussion wit the support team to try to solve the issue.
