Welcome to the list.

Please create a signature (My Stuff link at the top, My Profile) with VectorWorks version number, computer specs including OS version. This will make it possible to help.

Two options:

1. Use the PDF Export instead of Print then save as PDF. It has an option to export entire drawing as 1 page.

2. Edit your Page Setup to be One Page with the proper paper size for your final output.

A different printer driver might help if you want to use the Print to PDF route.

If you do the Export PDF, one of the options is Export the whole printable area as one page.

And funny....export as a pdf is near instantaneous. Printing with adobe pdf as your printer never even finishes on my computer.
