How do I make an extremely large (100 inches wide) Publisher document print to fit on a single page?

I am curating an exhibition, and a colleague of mine used Microsoft Publisher (a program I have zero experience with) to make diagrams of where my items should be laid out within each of the 10 display cases. In order to make the layouts as accurate as possible, she did everything at full scale, which works great, but Publisher wants to print it out at the size of the physical display case (like Stephen Wright's joke about the 1:1 scale map of the world).
There doesn't seem to be an obvious "print to fit" kind of button anywhere that I can find. I've tried saving it as a tif or jpeg, but it says the file size is too large. I converted it to a PDF, but it came up as a totally fragmented 70-page document. Any suggestions better than the kludge we've come up with so far, taking a screenshot and printing that?
