Print Preview & Print to Scale
The print button on the map toolbar offers "print preview & print to scale" and "Prepare printer image" options. Both can eventually bring up this form, which shows a reduced view of the current map, with the locations of page breaks indicated.
You will get the best quality on the final printout with the largest size image possible. Windows will limit the size of the map window you can open, but it is at least 2000 x 2000 pixels and is likely much larger (we have not tested this option in a long time), and a function of your hardware and the version of Windows you are running. Using a large map size is most critical when you print to a very large printer.
