How to Easily Print a Large Image to Multiple Pages in Windows | Scottie’s Tech.Info

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/04

Many applications cannot not do that (Paint.net is one of them), but Paint can at least in Windows XP, 7, 8. and 8.1 (I need to check other Windows versions).:

In any case, here’s what you do:

  1. Open the image you’d like to print in Paint
  2. Select: Print -> Page Setup (Vista and 7), or File -> Page Setup (in XP)
  3. Under Scaling, select Fit to and change the setting to something like “3 by 2 page(s)”
  4. Click OK
  5. Print the image from Paint, and make sure to select “All Pages”

Note the “3 by 2” has the order “horizontal by vertical”.

How to change the Notepad++ editor’s font – via Notepad++ Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/04

Paraphrased Steps (thanks guy038); Screenshots below.

  1. Choose the menu option Settings  -> Style Configurator…
  2. In the Style configurator dialog, choose the Global Styles under Language
  3. Then, under Style, select the Default Style (this won’t work for Global Override unless you have that one override everything)
  4. Finally, in the Font Style area, you can select your favourite Font name and/or its Size and apearance (Bold, Italic, Underscore)
  5. Confirm with Save & Close when you like the new font settings.

The cool thing is that if you have a file open, you will immediately see the effects even before pressing Save & Close.
