It'll be better for you to use the built-in A3 paper size, otherwise you'll not be able to print it perfectly. I you would like to do it, You can try this, after setting the documents and the documents size, give the print command, and under the printer properties, select the paper size, you'll see an option (custom) from the drop down list, select it an set the size, but you must leave a space for the printer to hold the paper. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

11x17 paper isn't printing properly


Check your printer manual to see if there is special setting for the 11 X 17 paper that you are using. If printers are not set up properly you can have hassles under certain conditions.

I want to use 11x14 paper on my dj1280 but it is not in the menu. neither is there a provision for user-defined paper sizes. what to do?


The 1280 isn't compatible with 11x14 paper. You can either use legal size (8.5x14) or ledger size (11x17), but you can't customize it to use 11x14.

The best solution would be to print onto 11x17 paper and then cut it to 11x14.

Can't print multiple PDF files in 11x17 format. I open windows explorer and select the specific PDF files. Click on File, Print. They all print out, but they all are 8 1/2 x 11 on a 11x17 paper, instead of...


Adobe Reader can be real pain it the... neck sometimes.
But first I would inspect not only the printer setup, but also printer's default print settings. Windows XP has 3 places, where you can see the printer options:
1. Printer properties
2. Print preferences
3. Default print setup.
The third one is the one you have to set. When you double click on your printer icon, a print queue window opens. Choose Printer->Properties, go to Advanced tab, and on the bottom there's a button "Default print setup" (I don't have English XP handy, so I'm translating back to English from my version - excuse me if they might appear a little different).
It's there you need to set up the default page size and so on.

If this still doesn't help, try opening Acrobat Reader, setting the Page Size Scaling to None, printing something and closing Acrobat Reader. From what I've seen, it tends to remember this setting from previous sessions.

You may also try alternative PDF readers, like Foxit Reader or PDF Xchange Reader.

Good luck :)
