SOURCE: do i can customize my paper size in MS Excel 2003

When you are in Excel, go to Print Preview, then Printer Properties. There should be a box that says "Custom Size." There you can input your paper size and name it so you can recall it anytime you want.

I have created a custom paper size 14' * 4' but i am unable to select the same paper size to set the page setup.


The maximum paper width the 6306 can print on is 13.6 inches, you will not be able to select a custom size form larger than the printer is capable of handling.Simply set the for size to 13.6 inches or the maximum width you will be printing.

Hello, I have an invitation that is 4in wide x 9 inches in height. I want to print something on it, but not sure how to get my printer to recognize that I am using custom size paper. It keeps printing on...


In addition to the wide variety of standard paper sizes available for this printer, you can use custom size paper in the Tray 1 (MPT).
The size range for custom size media is as follows:
    Minimum allowable page size:
    89 x 140 mm (3.5 x 5.5 in.)
    Maximum allowable page size:
    216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 in.)
  1. Open Tray 1 (MPT).
  2. Insert the custom size paper and adjust the guides to match the size of the paper. Place the side to be printed facedown with the top of the page entering the printer first.
  3. When the front panel prompts you to confirm the type and size of paper:
    1. Scroll to Change by pressing the Down Arrow key and press the OK key.
    2. Scroll to the correct paper type and press the OK key to save your selection.
    3. For the paper size, scroll to Custom and press the OK key.
    4. Select Set Custom Width (W) by pressing the OK key.
    5. Press the Down Arrow or Up Arrow key to scroll to the desired value for X and then press the OK key.
    6. Scroll to Set Custom Height (H) and press the OK key.
    7. Press the Down Arrow or Up Arrow key to scroll to the desired value for Y and then press the OK key.
  4. Select the custom size in the printer driver.
  5. Windows 95 / Windows 98 / Windows Me PostScript driver: On the Setup tab:
    • After you select the Multi-Purpose Tray and the tray displays Custom to indicate that it has custom size paper, enter the dimensions of the custom size paper in the Width and Height boxes.
    • If you select Automatic for the paper source and select Custom Size for the paper size, enter the width and height values of the desired custom size paper in the Width and Height boxes. The values for width and height are initially 0. If you previously entered information in the boxes, the values are automatically entered.
    Windows NT / Windows 2000 / Windows XP PostScript driver: On the Paper/Quality tab:
    • If you select Choose Specific Tray, select the Multi-Purpose Tray.
    • If you select Automatic, you can select your custom size from the Paper Size drop-down list.
    • Click My Custom Sizes and highlight the custom size in the Current Selection list. The Name, Width, and Height boxes display the details about the highlighted custom size and the sample image changes to represent a scaled version of the custom size.
    • To create a new custom size:
      1. Click New.
      2. Enter the new name in the Name box.
      3. Enter the dimensions in the Width and Height boxes. The sample image changes to represent a scaled version of the new custom size.
      4. Click Save to add the new size to the list. Click Cancel to exit without saving the new custom size.
      5. To exit, click Close.
    • The My Custom Sizes box lists existing custom sizes that are supported by the current printer. Since these custom sizes are saved in your computer's operating system, they are available for you to select in your applications.
    • If you create a custom size in certain applications, the driver lists the custom size automatically.
    MacOS 8 / MacOS 9 driver:
    • In the Page Setup dialog box, click on Page Attributes, and select Custom Page Sizes. Then press New to enter a new custom page size. A dialog box appears where you can enter the width and height, margins, and name of the custom page size.

TallyGenicom 2265+ not printing with custom paper size


There may be a number of causes for the problem you are seeing. There are a number of places which may hold the origin to the page length problem you are seeing, in order of precedence these are;

  1. The page size set in the software package printing the 6 x 4.25 cards
  2. The page size set the printer driver printing to the printer
  3. The page size set on the printer
I would recommend the follwoing;

  1. Set the form length on the printer to 6 inches (i am assuming this is the length of the card)
    The form length can be set through the menu and is normally set in lines (normaly the print size is set to 6 LPI) so the form length should be set to 33 lines
  2. Create a custom form size in SERVER PROPERTIES on the Windows XP machine to match the form size you are using.
    Ensure you select this form size in both PRINTER PROPERTIES and PRINTING PREFERENCES
  3. Try printing some Windows Test pages to see if these respect the page size selected withing the printer driver properties.
If the Windows Test Pages do not print correctly I would recommend checking how you are creating the CUSTOM SIZE form, perhaps create a new form and double check the form properties one it has been saved to confirm these are correct.

Check you are using the correct printer driver for the printer, you should be using the 2265+ printer driver. As a test you may wish to install the GENERIC TEXT printer driver or the EPSON LQ2250 driver, these will be included in the Windows Add Printers Wizard and should print OK to the 2265+.

If the Windows Test Page prints OK I think you would need to look at the software package printing to the printer. Ensure the correct page size is selected here also, perhaps try printing from another software package selecting your custom size form to see if these print correctly.

It is passable your software package is sending escape commands to the printer to call up the page size, I note you say Genicom printers printed ok from Win 98. The 2265+ may not have the same emulations as the Genicom printers.
You can print a menu print on both Genicom (if these are available) and 2265+ and compare the settings on these.

I do not believe the 2265+ has a Genicom emulation as standard, but you may be able to load an alternative version of firmware into the 2265+ which provides the Genicom emulation. If the data going to the printer contains Genicom Escape command to set form length this may resolve the issue.
You may need to contact your TallyGenicom support department for the firmware (I think it may be called 7265+ firmware)
If you are able to provide Hex Dumps of the data to the TallyGenicom support people they should be able to say what is going wrong with the form length setting.

Custom print size help Kodak 5500


if you are running windows vista there is a built in roadblock to being able to add any custom size pages. You have to turn off user account control by going into control panel, users, user accounts and then turn on/off user account control. After you do this you can add any size you want then if you want the added safety go back and turn on the user account control. Hope this helps and happy printing!

Epson FX-2190


What operating system are you using? In Windows, you can set it through server properties in the Printers area of the control panel, you can do this by creating a custom paper size. If you are running in DOS, you can set the page length through the printer itself by going to its default setting. In the printers default setting, make sure you are setting the length on the correct paper path (FRONT FEED, BACK FEED).

How to change paper size on axerox phaser 8500


From a Windows Operating System:
  1. From the computer, open the document to be printed within an application program.
  2. Click on [File] on the toolbar, and then click [Print]. The Print window will be displayed.
  3. Click on the [Properties] button, or the [Printing Preferences] button. The Properties or Printing Preferences window will be displayed.
  4. Click on the [Paper / Quality] tab.

    NOTE: Most applications will automatically provide the page size information to the driver. If not, steps 8 - 10 describe how to create a custom page size.

  9. In the Width field enter the width of the custom paper size.

    NOTE: The width should always be the short edge of the paper. For example, if the custom size is 127 mm by 394 mm (5 inches by 10 inches), the width must be set to 127 mm (5 inches) regardless of the orientation of the document or the feed method on the printer.

  10. In the Height field enter the height of the custom paper size.

    NOTE: The height should always be the long edge of the paper. For example, if the custom size is 127 mm by 394 mm (5 inches by 10 inches), the height must be set to 394 mm (10 inches) regardless of the orientation of the document or the feed method on the printer.

  11. Click on [Save]
