Hi folks,

answered a few problems tonight but even i have a problem that i cannot sort out.

here goes -

my printer always default paper setting to ` letter 81/2 x 11 in `


if i go to



epson printer



and the paper setting is always 8 1/2 x 11 even though i set it at A4 the next time i look it has changed back to 8 1/2 x 11 ????

That is the default size for printing on A4 paper.

hi, mine is set to A4. I noticed that there is a default button. Maybe if you selected A4 and then clicked the default button, this would set the paper to that. Worth a go? J

8 1/2 x 11 inch is letter, 210 x 297 mm is A4, they are different.

When you set the paper size are you clicking OK when you should first be clicking Apply?

Some word processors remember the settings used last time and set the driver parameters to be the same unless you change them and then save the document.

control panel/printers and faxes

right click your printer

select properties/advanced/printing defaults

set up for A4 210X297mm under the paper tab

click the layout tab and tick the reduce enlarge/fit to page box and set to A4 here too.

click ok.
