About Split and Print for Android

    Split and Print operates with ten different standard paper sizes, it’s easy to use – just select or drag-and-drop the file you need and click on print. Split and Print has zoom in and zoom out functionality.

How it works

    To start working with app you need to open drop-down menu using “Hamburger button”, three short horizontal lines, on the top-left corner of app view.

Menu     Drop-down menu has five buttons: “New Job” to select image you want to print out, “View Job” to see how many pages it’ll take and all pages layout, “Print Job” to send all the pages to printer and control printer, “Job Parameters” to change app settings such as paper size, etc., and “Help”.

Parameters     App operates with different standard paper sizes.
    User selects printing DPI from the most common values; default DPI is 300 which is supported by almost all the known printers.
    User selects printer margin from the list of the most common values including automatic margin value selection. When “Auto” margins is selected app is trying to find the best margins value for minimum amount of paper.
    Printout overlap is the area outside of the cut dashed line which does not belong to the page and helps make pages sticks less noticeable when the job is assembled. For every printer margin size except “Auto” selected overlap is treated by app as “maximum desirable” – margin has priority over overlap. In case of “Auto” printer margin app does not alter selected overlap.

View     As soon as new job starts by opening new image file or reopening current one, app creates list of pages to be printed out using selected on “Job Parameters” paper size, printer margins etc. and current image size; app also determines optimum print orientation – landscape or portrait.
    Red lines show how app built list of pages. Big numbers in the center of every page depict those page numbers when printed, red lines are the printed pages borders. App rebuilds current job including actual printed pages amount and size, immediately upon any of the Job Parameters changed.

Print     App is using Android printer dialog by default. This dialog allows every page to be previewed before printed out. Every page has four paper cut dashed lines – one per side. You can even de-select pages you don’t want to print out.
    On certain Android devices user can change print orientation and other printing parameters, in such a case user have to make sure that all the printing parameters match ones selected on app “Job Parameters” page: orientation, paper size and DPI.
