Printing Maps on Larger Page Sizes

As of October 1, 2023 we no longer support the Contour Elite product.

The contents featured in the article below may still be of use to you however, and so will continue to be available.


Currently, Contour Elite prints maps on standard 8.5 X 11 paper. If you would like to print on larger sizes such as legal or 11X17, here is a possible work around.

1. Zoom the map to the region of the lake you would like to print.
2. On your keyboard, hold down the Ctrl button and push the Print Screen button.
3. Go to Start-->Programs-->Accessories and open MS Paint.
4. In the Paint menu at the top, select "Edit" and then select "Paste". This should paste an image of the map view into the Paint document.
5. Then, select "File" and select "Page Setup". In the Page Setup box, select the paper size, "Landscape" for the orientation, reduce the margins, and select "Fit to 1 page by 1 page" in the scaling section. Then, push the OK button.
6. Finally, go back to the File menu and select "Print".

This should allow you to print the map view on larger paper.
