    Setting the Print Options for a Letterhead Template

    We have a new printer with 3 drawers. Our "plain paper" option is set as the default, pulling from tray 3.
    Our pre-printed letterhead is in tray 2. When we use the Letterhead template, we want it to automatically print from tray 2.
    What we've tried:
    Under "Print, Page Setup, we've set the print options in the template and saved the options as the default for that template.
    The problem is we still get prompted at the printer to choose the letterhead drawer...won't print automatically.

    We are using mostly Office 2007 and a few stations have Office 2010.

    What can we do?
    Thank you
    Charlotte

    You could try setting this in the Page Setup dialog in your template and see what happens. This is on the Page Layout tab using the dialog launcher in the corner of the Page Setup group (see screenshot).
