Hello,

I want to make a screen version of a poster
and I would like therefore a page format such as 200cm * 30cm.
I have no problem with tex accepting that, but I don't know
how to have acroread display that large page. Is it possible?

On a related note, how do I include a metapost figure
with plain pdftex? When I try the following

\input graphicx
\hsize=200cm
\vsize=30cm
\includegraphics{e.1}
\end

I get

(/usr/local/tex/texmf/tex/latex/graphics/dvips.def)))) <e.1> [1
Non-PDF special ignored!{/usr/local/tex/texmf/pdftex/config/psfonts.map}{/usr/l
...

Is it normal?

Thanks,

Denis
