How do I setup a PowerPoint document to be printed with the DesignJet?

After starting a new document in PowerPoint, go to File > Page Setup and change the document dimensions.

We use a 42 inch roll of poster paper, so keep poster dimensions under 56 by 42 inches.

Please also make sure that all content is not directly near the edges of the document to prevent it from being cut off during printing.
