Print high quality large CatProduct, CatProcess, etc. image to scale


New member
I can print or save an image to scale by going to File -> Print and set Scale to whatever I need. In my case it's 1% since I am attempting to print something that is 350 feet wide. I can send to a plotter or save as pdf. I click on options and adjust the Rendering quality to as high as it will let me but the max number gets smaller the larger the area I am trying to print or save. Also, the when I do print or save the image comes out very pixelated. I cannot use the Tools -> Image -> Capture option because I need to maintain the scale of the image being printed. Are there any suggestions how I may be able to either print or save to pdf and save to scale with high resolution. I'm not concerned about file size.
