I want to create a document that will be 8.5" x 50" that I have it printed on 4-8.5" x 14" sheets through my printer, which I then cut and tape together. How do I do this in InDesign CS?

Thanks in Advance for your reply,

Sebastian

2 reasons you need more that 4 pieces of paper to tile your job.

1) Most printers do not print to the edge of teh paper, because the gripper has to grip the paper without ink/varnish adn that is what keeps your printer clean form loose toner/ink.

2) You need overlap (.125" minimum), to register your prints against.

You will need 8 pieces of paper to do this. Now if you document was 8" x 40", you could then do it on 4 pieces of legal paper.
