    Paper/Output-Page Size (03)

    I am using a HP LaserJet 4P to print on 6" x 4" paper stock. I can reset the margins and etc manually but would like to know if it is possible to create a template that I would be able to select. The selection would appear in the following list:

    Thanks,
    John

    This is a printer setting, not a Word setting:
    - Activate the Printers and Faxes control panel.
    - Select your HP Laserjet.
    - Select File | Server Properties... from the menu bar of the Printers and Faxes window.
    - Tick the check box labeled "Create a new form".
    - Enter a name in the 'Form name' box.
    - Specify width, height etc.
    - Click OK.
    The new paper size should now appear in the list.

    Hans,

    Thanks for the instructions. I didn't know one was able to create a form.

    After I setup and saved the form I am unable to see it in the drop down list. In fact there are other forms that are not visible as well. The only thing that I see is the short list in my first post. I tried rebooting and that did not work.

    Regards,
    John

    I can't help you then - the new paper size immediately appeared in Word when I tried it. I didn't even have to quit and reopen Word.

    Hans,

    I got it to appear by changing the width/height of the custom form to 8 x 11. All I have to do now is adjust the margins to accomodate the 4 x 6 custom form size.

    Regards,
    John
