WORD DOCs – CREATING A CUSTOM PAGE SIZE:
Some printers will not automatically detect the Page Set-Up settings from your template. In this case, you will need to adjust the “paper size” setting manually under your printer’s settings to configure it for printing to this custom sized sheet of paper.
ClICK HERE to See a step by step video of how to create a custom paper size or you can follow the instructions below:
To do this, open the template and click on FILE<< PRINT in this box, click on the PROPERTIES or PREFERENCES button.A new box will open up which will contain the various setting options within your printer.
Search in these tabs for the following settings: Locate your paper size drop-down box (this may be in an “Advanced”, “Features” or “Paper/Quality” tab… it may be also be called “Resizing Options”)– it is likely defaulted to letter size.
In the drop-down box or just below it, select “CUSTOM/User Defined” and enter in the width and height of your paper. This measurement can be found in the Page Set-up (FILE<< PAGE SET-UP), or by measuring this item with a ruler.
*****You may need to name/save this setting. Be sure after defining this size, you also select it. Some printers will make you exit and re-enter the Properties/Preferences to be able to select a newly defined size.
******* You may also need to check the CUSTOM setting in the Scale to Paper Size drop-down box found on the initial screen of FILE >> PRINT in order for the custom size to register with your printer.
Please test print your project to make sure you are happy with the final alignment. You can make additional test sheets by trimming a plain sheet of paper to the size of your project. If you are having problems setting the paper size, please consult your printer’s manual or the manufacturer’s website for further help.
