    Hi Jimbo, sorry about the delay in responding.

    Setting your map size to 3ft x 4ft is no problem – just set that size in the Drawing Setup dialog.

    You can Export or Print your map to a PDF of that size without any problem. You might need to set a custom paper size if doing it via the Print dialog, and create a “generic” printer to act as a placeholder for the real printer. Or use Export and select the PDF option with 100% scale.

    Most professional print shops with large format printers should be able to cope with printing a map of that size from a PDF.
