printing to size A0, A1, A2 paper

Turbocad 2018 pro platinum.  Drilling holes in large metal plates.  It would be most convenient if I could print out a full size outline of the plate with holes to be drilled, and adhere it to the blank plate.  Saves time.  So I make the drawing and it prints fine on letter size paper on the office printer (reduced in size).  FedExKinko's will print an A2 sheet for only 90 cents, if only I could get Windows 10 to cooperate.

But if I set the drawing sheet size to A2 (about 16 inches by 23 inches), choose printer sheet size the same, and use "Microsoft print to PDF" a box pops up with this text:  "Cannot print with the current printer setup. Check the printer connection."

Does anyone have suggestions?

I believe that "Microsoft print to PDF" only works with Microsoft products; Word, Excel, etc. When I try it with TurboCAD 2018, it locks up the program. There are free PDF programs available on the 'net that should be able to do the job.

Thanks, John R.  I've seen the light.  The free version of SODA PDF works very well.  What a relief.  Thanks again.
