How do I make the mind map bigger for printing---the print and pics are way too small?

I don't care if I have to fit it onto more than 1 page. How can anybody read it in this format?

Normally MindManager will fill the sheet of paper with the map minus a margin setting which is in Print > Page Set Up. If you have lots of content the font and images for topics will be small.

You can poster print by using the Options in the Print pane.

You may also find it convenient to print sections of you map or to use Send to New Map to create an array of maps. These can be printed in one go via the Linked Maps view.

Of course the best thing is an A0 roll fed printer :)

Thank you Andrew for your speedy reply and suggestions, including the link to your website. I'll try the "Send to New Map" . I want to put sections of my map on a bristol board.

You can of course change the map's growth direction purely for the purposes of printing - for example you may find an org-chart layout suits printing better than a conventional map, or vice versa.

You can also use the Windows 7/Vista snipping tool or other third-party software to either capture the whole map or portions of it. You can then paste the resulting jpg to a Word file or similar and magnify it, strecth it either in height or width and/or crop the edges or even other bits that you don't need.

what I would appreciate is to be able to print a slide 'fit to window/page'; I create my slide so their size is workable, so that would be useful in printing too...
