Hi! I am making a poster with PowerPoint. The required size of the poster

is 4-ft by 8-ft, but the max. width or height allowed in Page Setup is only

56 inches. Is there any way I can go around with this?

      No more so than if PPT let you dial in the actual final size of the poster.

      The text and drawing elements you do in PPT will scale w/o problems.

      If you have images in the presentation, they'll need to be higher resolution

      than ordinarily for smaller size printing.
