    Hi

    The problem is that when we plot to our designjet a message appears "Paper
    too small press enter to continue"

    The paper is way big enough

    I have changed the paper size settings in AutoCAD and the printable area but
    then I get the message in AutoCAD: "The plotter does not support the paper
    size 592.98 x 418.65 mm, printable area 586.00 x 412.00 mm. Confirm the new
    paper size before plotting".

    This is really annoying...

    I don't understand how AutoCAD calculates the printable area and margins,
    I've changed the settings but the paper size then changes to a completely
    different size to what is typed in...It doesn't seem to make sense.

    Thanks

    Assuming you are using single sheet. You have a "trailing edge" min. and a
    "leading edge" min. and two equal "side margin" minimums. Look up these
    dimensions in your manual. I could look them up, but then I don't have your
    problem.
