    Why does Print to File (Generic / Text Only) have a paper size designation?


    I am printing to file and need this without page breaks or cut off's due to width constraints. Additionally, custom form sizes cannot be utilized here.


    Please fix this. This has been an issue with Windows from day one even with past versions. I tried calling Technical Support and they were clueless.

  2. Microsoft Print to PDF - custom paper sizes possible?

    Hi,

    We suggest that you try to set the paper size of the exact document first. You can create a custom page size before you proceed with
    Microsoft Print to PDF, it should auto-detect the paper size of the document.

    To set the paper size in Microsoft Office:

    • Click on the Page Layout/Page Design tab.
    • Click on Size, and then in the options available, click on
      More Paper Sizes...
    • Click on the drop-down arrow and scroll down to the last option which is
      Custom size
      . You will be able to customize your preferred paper size.
    • Once done, click on OK, and then proceed with Microsoft Print to PDF.

    Let us know how it goes.

  3. On photo print paper size. I would like to have a 11X17 print paper size.Would it be possible to add a user defined section on paper size?

    Yes, I have that shown. But when I go to paper size on my Epson WF-7610 I have 13 paper sizes shown. None have a 11X17. I can get legal size for the largest paper. I would like to print 11X17 either as listed or user defined for me to size.

    Paper sizes

    I'm running Windows 10; I have an HP Officejet 7610. I've been using an old version of Adobe Photoshop Essentials (on an old Dell laptop---incredibly slow). I just subscribed to Adobe Photoshop (as the software doesn't seem to be available on CD anymore)
    With my old program, I could print poster sizes 11 x 17 and 13 x 20. These options are no longer available when I using Photoshop. Any suggestions for adding paper sizes to the dropdown list?
