I have a large base map of a major city and I need to plot the whole think to send to a print company to plot.  Since I do not know the actual plotter I want to PDF the file to them to print out.........

What is the best way to accomplish this?  Page setup will not let me set a page size long enough for a plot.......

What Version and Edition are you using?
Do you have PDF software installed from which to Print?

TurboCAD does have a "Save As" PDF format (Deluxe thru Platinum) and you can specify a Page width/height, if "Zoom to extents mode" is checked. When saving as PDF, click on the "Setup" button to access the "PDF File Export" dialog.

Install a free PDF printer driver.  I use CutePDF; it is capable of printing Arch E (48 x 36 in).
