    I'm unable to get either one of these plotters to draw anything other than
    ANSI A sized drawings when attempting to plot ANSI B, C or D sized sheets.

    Both plotters are run off a print server. The workstations are using
    Windows 2000 Professional O/S.

    Tips, suggestions and errata as to how to get full sized plots on both or
    either machine would be deeply appreciated!!

    As you suggested, Anne has sent me here a few times regarding this question.
    You've been the only respondant here in print plot.

    I CAN print larger sizes with AutoCAD 2004, but only after I added a plotter
    through AutoCAD. The windows printers were not able to print to anything
    larger than A also.
    Are there any settings within Inventor that I might want to look at?

    Thanks for the reply, waiting for additional instructions or suggestions.

    have you tried the following:
    on the plot server: Start -> Settings -> Printers
    Then File -> Server Properties
    Tab Forms: try to create a new form, 35,99 inch wide, 60 inch long, call it 60inchRoll or so.
    then Pick the HP plotter, go to the Document Defaults and see if you can choose this new form as the default paper size. If you can, than you will be able to select this sheet in all Windows programs (Excel, Project and perhaps als Inventor)
    If you Can't go to the HP plotter Properties and check if you have selected that it has a 36" Roll.
