I have an Acer Aspire Laptop running Win 7 which I often use for work related stuff, some of which involves scheming out layouts for Power Station Systems. As the Reports are prepared in Word I usually add Appendixes with the Scheme on (drawn using Word Draw - which is not the best but is nice and easy) but on A3 size sheets.
My printer is an HP Deskjet F300 A4 printer which then controls the maximum paper size in Word (the A3 option doesn't appear). The Schemes are actually emailed to my Head Office and printed off there so I don't need to print them, but I need to format the sheet to A3.
In previous Windows versions I have got round this by simply adding another printer driver for an A3 printer (even though I don't have one), and the A3 option then appears in Word. But not with Win7 - no matter what I do I can't get the A3 sheet to show up.
I have installed the driver for an HP 890c (wide format) printer but no go. Any ideas to get round this?
