Set Paper Size
 
 
 

In the Plot dialog box, select the paper size that you want to use.

If you plot from a layout, you may have already specified a paper size in the Page Setup dialog box. However, if you plot from the Model tab, you need to specify a paper size when you plot. In the Plot dialog box, select the paper size that you want to use. The list of paper sizes depends on the printer or plotter that you have selected in either the Plot or Page Setup dialog box. The list of available plotters includes all those that are currently configured for use with Windows and those for which you have installed non-system drivers.

You can also set the default page size used to create new layouts for most plotters by editing the PC3 file associated with that plotter. For Windows system printers, you can use this technique to specify different default page sizes for Windows and for this program.

NoteIf the PAPERUPDATE system variable is set to 0, you are prompted if the layout's existing paper size is not supported by the plotter you have selected. If the PAPERUPDATE system variable is set to 1, the paper size is automatically updated to reflect the default paper size of the selected plotter.

Use a Custom Paper Size

If you need to specify a paper size that is not listed in either the Plot dialog box or the Page Setup dialog box, you can add a custom paper size for a non-system plotter using the Plotter Configuration Editor. Typically, you cannot add a custom paper size to Windows system printers because the allowable page sizes and printable areas are determined by the manufacturer. However, you can modify the printable area for paper sizes associated with a Windows system printer.
