Word 2002, Custom Paper Size Won't Print

Q: Word 2002, Custom Paper Size Won't Print

Hi, I need to print on 3.3 x 8.0 card stock.

From Page Setup, set the custom page size and margins. Margins are set
outside the printable area message comes up when I try to print.
From the print properties I try to create a custom page and get the
following errors:
"The custom paper size you have just defined will not become available
for selection until you have exited and re-entered the Printing
Preferences/Properties."
"This custom paper size could not be modified because it is currently
in use. Please close all applications and try again."
"Function address 0x4f4abe05 caused a protection fault. (exception
code 0xc0000005) The application property sheet page(s) may not
funciton properly." When you click Ok the screen goes crazy and you
have to cancel out.
This template has been used by other departments and we cannot figure
out why we cannot use it.
Thanks so very Much!

I am trying to print a Word 2000 document that has a number of connecting text boxes (a family tree), which makes the document wider than a standard sheet of paper. (it would end up being the width of two pieces of paper side by side in a landscape formation.) Initially, to accomplish this, I went to Page Setup; under paper size, I chose "custom" and selected 22" wide by 8.5" high. Below that under Orientation, I chose Landscape.

The document is finished now and looks just right. The only thing is I can't figure out how to print it. It either prints out microscopic or if it is normal size, it only prints the part that fits on a normal size of paper. It leaves the entire right half of the document out.

What could be the solution? Thanks.
 

A:How do you print custom size word 2000 documents

I also chose "custom" and selected 22" wide by 8.5" high. Then I downloaded this http://postersw.com/ & tested it a little (copied & pasted from Word). It seemed to stretch graphics vertically, but maybe you could play around with it.

HTH,

Not sure which sub-forum to post this; apologies.

I want to print this image, 1:1 precisely: http://cdn.arstechnica.net/wp-conten...hone-scale.pdf

In Europe we use the A4 image size; and I guess the original was formatted to US paper size (different). I am not a printing expert; do I need any sizing or adjustments?

To add insult to injury I even do not own a printer; I have to bring this thing to a print shop and possibly instruct them accordingly. By the law of large numbers, the print shop will likely use Windows; the 7th.

A:How to print image from US paper size to A4 size 1:1, precisely?

The print shop should have no problem adjusting the print size on there equipment.
The adjustment are not made with Windows 7 they are made with the printer program that came with the printers they use.

Back again. *sighs*

I've got a tough one for you this time. Well, maybe.

I need to create a custom paper size for an Epson LQ-590 dotmatrix printer. Currently running Windows XP Pro, and got the latest printer driver from Epson today.

I've gone into the "Printers and Fax" window, opened the "Server Properties" window in the "File" drop down menu. In the "Forms" tab, I've created and saved the paper size I need.

I go back to the "Properties" for my Epson, get to the "advanced printing preferences" and open the dropdown menu for paper size....and my form is not there.

What the heck am I doing wrong? This is the same procedure I used for my previous printer (OkiData Microline) and everything was cool.

I suddenly don't like Epson.

Hi fellow members,

I'm facing a problem about my printer under Windows 8.1. I cannot create custom paper size.

My previous printer is a HP P2035 printer. According to HP, the driver is built into Windows 8.1 and thus does not offer any driver for w8.1. The printer is detected correctly and I'm able to print, except I cannot create a custom paper size.

I raised this issue on the HP forum and a couple of members explained that the printer is pretty old and thus there is no incentive for Microsoft nor HP to develop a driver for Windows 8.1

Then I change to Fuji Xerox DocuPrint p355db. Again this printer is able to print just fine by Windows 8.1 built in driver, except the driver just won't allow me to create a custom paper size!

Help please.

Hi,

I have an Epson LQ 300+ dot matrix printer network shared from a Windows XP machine.
I use a specific custom print size (W: 21.6, H: 13.95). I have a Windows 7 machine
that uses this printer. I have added the custom print size to the Windows 7 list of
print sizes.

When I print from the Windows XP machine, it prints ok.

However, when I print it from the Windows 7 machine, it prints the stuff but form feeds
as if it was set to print to an A4 page size.

I've deleted the printer and re-added it on the Windows 7 machine and I've set the
print size to use the specific custom print size; but it still acts as if it's printing A4.

Can someone shed some light as to what's going on?

I have been working on a word document at home in Word 2002. Sometimes I work on it on campus using one of their laptops which has Word 2007. The file size at home is 1.7 MB (it's 217 pages and their are a couple jpg figures and macros for table of contents, list of figure, and list of tables). When I saved it last on my flash drive in Word 2007, the size was around 1.5 MB. There doesn't seem to be anything missing but instead of copying the flash drive version to my harddrive (and other location), I copied and pasted the changed portions instead just to be safe.

The file is in the .doc format, not docx (although I have the docx converter on my home computer). Does Word 2007 save files differently (more efficiently?) than Word 2002? Is it safe to work between the two versions and copy over the file using "send to" when saving the home version to my flash drive and selecting/copying/pasting (the file icon in the drive's explorer window to the harddrive explorer window) when saving the changes from the flash drive version back to the hard drive? Is there a chance working on the file with different versions of Word might mess it up somehow?

How can I change the default print configuration so that "black" is the active configuration rather than "color" -- and thereby save myself the problem of always having to enter "advance" and change it manually.

The only resolution I've seen work was to use Intuit's Quicken or QuickBooks for printing on pre-printed check blanks. Part of the issue [may not apply here] is the requirement of banks with the special type of ink used for the routing, account and check numbers on the lower edge. If not using Intuit's paper perhaps the supplier of the check blanks involved have a template for use in Word?

Hey all. I'm running Word 2003 on XP Pro, and I have a real throat-slasher of a Microsoft Word problem on my hands that I have posted far and wide on many forums, to no avail.

I have a picture that I am trying to post as a background image to a Word document. To do this, I go Format - Background - Fill Effects - Picture - Select Picture, then I choose the picture. The picture shows up, and when I view the file in Print View at 100% Zoom, it is at the perfect scale to my liking. But when I print the document, the background image is shrunk to a fraction of its original size and tiled in the background, behind the document text.

I have posted this on several different forums already, and the only answer I have received so far was from Garfield-n-Odie, who suggested the following:

"In Word, try turning off background printing in Tools | Options | Print. In Windows, try turning off print spooling and advanced text services in Start | Control Panel | Printers | right-click on your printer Properties."

"Check the setting of the "Print body text before header/footer" option on the Compatibility tab of Tools | Options. If the box is checked, clear it and vice versa and see if that helps."

"If you can you print to a different printer, try that."

I've tried these all, on a couple of different computers. No dice. Any ideas? I'm really at the end of my rope. Thanks a million in advance.

Excel 2002 determines the paper size by reading the settings from the printer driver. This differs from earlier versions I believe.

I am in the UK, using a PC running Windows XP Home Edition with IE6.

Like the rest of the world outside North America (as far as I know), we in Europe don't use Letter size paper, so I want to set my default page size to A4. I've made sure that all my regional settings are on UK, and that my printer settings in Control Panel are on A4. I've succeeded in changing the defaults in Office (well, Word at least - haven't tried the others yet) but can't find a way to do it in Internet Explorer / Outlook Express.

I know how to change the page size for a single session by opening IE and going into File > Page Setup, but the problem is that I have to do this EVERY TIME I OPEN INTERNET EXPLORER - it always defaults back to Letter size. (Sorry for shouting, but I've posted this question in a couple of other places and people just keep telling me to do what I've already done, so I want to make it clear that this isn't working for me!)

The users aren't using Office, so amending the standard normal.dot won't help them - they each pick up the paper size from the device in 'devices and printers'.  There are a lot of pcs, and a lot of users, so even though it sticks for each user on each
machine, they hotdesk, so could be at any machine.
I've hunted the registry, but can't find a default paper size in anything obvious.
Thanks

A:How to set default paper size on printer for all users

1. I would address printer vendor support with this problem.
2. Make sure that program that users are printing from support target size.
Both seems to be beyong the default settings.

Is there a way to force all documents sent to the printer to be printed on the A4 paper rather than the printer asking for US letter size.

I have asked the xerox printer supplier for help, they have configured the printer to do as i ask, but it is being over ruled somewhere along the process. I have told all staff to select A4 as the default paper size both in the word application and in the printer properties tab. I'm not sure what else to do, I have heard mention of doing something with the printer drivers on the server, but am afraid that is a bit beyond my abilities, I am happy to google and give things a go, but I do not have full admin rights where I work and would have to be confident that what I am trying, will work; and be able to fully explain it to the computer illiterates that do have full admin rights.

A solution to this problem would be gratefully received.

I have a Vista 32 laptop and want to use "Monarch Envelope" or equivalent on the Internet "Page Setup." Since "Monarch Envelope" is not in the list - can it be added? If so, how? If not, any idea what the equivalent is? Thanks

A:Page Setup - Paper Size question

Are you trying to do this in MS Word?

If Monarch Envelope is not an available option, you might be best off using Custom, measuring the size of the envelope and adding in the dimensions manually

If doing it in Internet Explorer 7, Envelope Monarch (as opposed to Monarch Envelope) should be an available option, though the options differ depending on whatever your default printer is
