Printing large mind maps

There are some occasions where you'd like to print out your mind map. However, if you've got a large mind map with multiple nodes, printing to a standard 8.5 x 11 or A4 sized paper makes the mind map unreadable. The Solution? Print the mind map to multiple pages using the 'Tile all pages' option in Adobe Acrobat's print settings.
