I have a large topo map of a wilderness area.  The map is all vector data, 12 layers, some of the layers are polygons, some are polylines. I have ArcDesktop and I created the map in ArcMap.

 

I need to print to PDF specific sections of the huge map. The sections I need to print are not an exact grid, some sections I need to print landscaped and some sections portrait.  Some of the sections will overlap with other sections.  I am printing 25" x 30" sections and there are 27 separate sections to print.

 

I want to keep the huge map in one piece and not break it up into smaller maps because when the map is all one large map, then I can make changes, for example, change the color of all the lakes by changing the property of one layer.

 

My question is, how can I print to PDF specific sections of a large map?
