    Converting to PDF for large printing

    I am desperately trying to convert a mappoint project into a pdf for printing a large map. I downloaded a conversion tool but the level of detail is lost. Most printing companies require these files into a PDF format. What can I do? Please help.

    What conversion tool do you have? I would think the trick is to get the map image into the pdf at the same image size or resolution, otherwise it is stretched or 'smooshed', is this the problem?

    One thing you might try is creating a screenshot and then paste into Word, re-size as necessary and then create the pdf from there.

    Just a thought, but the version of acrobat writer (5 i think ) installs a printer called abode distiller. This allows the creation of pdf files from the print command. Would that notr do thte job?
