    Hi, i just installed a new driver for our Hp 1050 plotter so now my old pmp files are detached. So i trie to create new custom papersizes in the custom settings of the HP printer.
    So far it works fine, BUT
    i cannot set the printable area to a size that matches the custom size i just entered in the printersettings.

    For example:
    Custom 1 = 914x2000 (mm.) Printable Area = 913x1999
    (thisone is fine)
    Custom 2 = 914x920 (mm.) Printable area = ONLY 209x296 mm!

    When i try to modify height and witdth (after setting non-printable edges) it wont let me set a size bigger then 209x296 mm!

    Does anyone have an idea what is wrong here?

    In your Windows driver, Printer properties: change sheet to roll if you have one. At the windows Document defaults change A4 or Letter to A0.
    try again in AutoCAD
