You need to add the specific plotter driver into your windows printer(s). Then in the Print Dialog box in Project, select that plotter. You will then be able to print your project on that paper, as it will give you the paper and page settings for that printer at that point.

Hope this helps you.

Once you've set up the plotter as one of your printers, go into File-Page Setup and on the page tab, you'll need to define a paper size -say 33in x 44in and check to box to fit the output into 1 page - press print preview to see what it looks like.

Note that the other tabs in page setup allow you to define Custome headers and footers for your printout
Caution, the changes you make will belong only to that specific view - use tools organizer to move the view around
