Board-Off Printing

I tried printing and sticking the tiled 1:1 plan together using the method described in the previous post. While it did work,  it was very tedious and getting the pages to align properly on both axes was very difficult. I ended up with quite an uneven surface and the final plan was not dead straight.

So, to make things a bit easier I've just added a switch to the OutlineParameters that lets you print a diagonal grid over the top of the baord plan so that you have multiple points and lines to get the pages aligned when you print off a tiled version of the 1:1 plans. The output looks like this and shoulb be much easier to sticky-tape together.

 This will be included in 1.3.10 that I'll post in the next few days.
