So I am not the only one encountering the same problem! Printing A4 & DL are great but it simply does not let me print A6 properly no matter how hard I tried to configure the paper size (at the printer settings, printer preferences, the application settings etc) Can Fuji Xerox fix this?
just use your custom paper size and rewrite the settings.In some drivers U cannot delete the paper size from the driver properties.IF U still want to delete the custom paper size that you've created They are in the windows registry_but deleting keys from there is not recommended.
Went to HP support web site and found the following info. The HP drivers link will take to their download site If you haven't installed the Vista Print drivers yet.
Our church bought new computers with Vista Busines two years ago and after struggling with it for 6 months went back XP Pro. This was before any Vista service packs had been released so I'm not sure if these issues have improved. We are in no hurry to upgrade to Vista. Some articles I've read about 6 months ago recommended waiting for windows 7. I haven't followed how the release of windows 7 is going. Vista is a VERY DIFFERENT ANIMAL and can be frustrating. Been there and I feel your pain. hp drivers and downloads Microsoft support
I had to seek Help several times, and then work through the steps a few times before I learned the overly complex HP method for setting custom sizes (I never thought I would have anything good to say about Dell printers, but it was MUCH easier to set custom sizes on my old Dell than on this HP C7180).
Anyway, it sounds as though you are nearly there. After you set the size and save the name, you must click OK, then click OK in the Document Properties window. Then close any open windows, like "Document Properties" or "Print Pictures", and start over from "Pictures" or whatever photo browser you are using. Chose an image and click "Print". Under Printer, chose "C7100 series", not "...series fax". Under Paper size chose "More". Your new custom size should now be the last size listed (although, it has shown up as the first size a couple of times, ...go figure). BTW, I am using Windows Vista.
Hope this helps.
I had the same problem. Didn't find the answer. I removed the HP 1280 driver and installed HP 1220 Driver. It worked. It prints all the sizes perfectly. What is in name if we get the prints on A3 size. whether it is HP 1280 or HP 1220 :)
