how do you reduce size of tiled plans pdf?

Hey everyone,
I'm trying to print out an 80% version of RCA's MVP, but I'm can't get my pdf to print out to that size. I have the free Adobe reader. Any ideas?

Get the full drawing and than use Tile Print. Any picture file can be tile printed to any size with this neat little program. Print this file out in high definition on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper. Use the Reader option to fit to paper. Now scan it as a .jpg file into your computer.

Can you do this? If so, we'll go to the next step.

button, just follow this in the reader you have:

File,print,properties,effects, after you hit the effects button there should be a slider bar to the left for percentages. Reduce it to 80% and then try printing.

Effects? Slider Bar?
What version of Adobe Reader do you have?

Or are these functions available from your printer? What kind of printer is that? I need one of those.
