The situation

1. You have a schematic in PDF format, but it's hard to read when printed on A4
2. Only A4 printer available
3. Printer drivers can't solve the problem
4. A3 size wanted (ie two sheets A4, with some overlap for taping together)
5. Following (free/OSS) programs are available:
GIMP
PosteRazor

To illustrate point 3: my printer will print multiple pages per sheet ("2 in 1" - ie reduce), or print an A4 page on (n x n) sheets (A2 - four times the area), but there's no option to double the size to A3. A4 too small; A2 too big
