Welcome to the HP Community Forum.

 

The printer is not the right tool for this type of job.

 

 Printer Specifications for HP OfficeJet Pro 8700 Printers

Scanning specifications

Review the following for the available scanning features, scan resolutions, and scan sizes.
  • Image editor included
  • Integrated OCR software automatically converts scanned text to editable text
  • Scan speeds vary according to the complexity of the document
  • Twain-compliant interface (Windows only)
  • Resolution: 1200 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) optical
  • Color: 24-bit color, 8-bit grayscale (256 levels of gray)
  • Maximum scan size from glass (all models): 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14.0 inches)
  • Maximum scan size from ADF (all models): 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14.0 inches)

 

So... What?

Were it mine to do, I'd look for a professional print / scan service in my area.

Why?

Fighting with a 26 inch piece of paper to fit single "pages" of the document onto the scanner, shifting the paper, then adding the next "page" -- section -- of your paper is likely more trouble than the results would be worth.

 

What else?

If you don't care about the original,

IF the paper weight and type is supported by the printer,

Cut the document into sheets that will fit in the ADF and Scan the document.

Still tricky -- you still end up with lots of "pages" but at least the pages would scan.

 

 

Print - Large Size Image / Document in PDF format

Windows - standard tool set:  Full Driver and  Adobe Reader DC

 

With the Full Feature Software / full driver printer software installed,

Print the document at the size you want using  Adobe Reader DC  and Size = Poster (Tiled Printing).

 

 Print PDF - Size or Poster

 

Print PDF in Adobe Reader DC 

 

Open the PDF document in Adobe Reader DC 

Click the Print icon

Open Properties

Set Shortcut to Everyday Printing or similar (Plain paper printing, single sided)

Select your Paper Size

Click OK to save change(s) and Exit the Properties menu

Main print menu

If printing at 100% or smaller, Page Sizing & Handling = Actual, Fit / Shrink to fit, percentage (wording varies)

OR

If printing “larger than 100%”, Page Sizing & Handling > Poster

Poster Printing - Notes

  • If the file is smaller than the paper size and you need it larger, increase the Tile Size
  • If the file is already larger than the paper size, it will be divided into Tiled sheets needed to print the file
  • Enter an "overlap" and whether you want the "cut marks" included

When ready, click to Print
