Configure Raster Image Printer to Use a Custom Paper Size

Scroll Prev Top Next More

For most applications, when the original file is printed, the paper size is part of the information beings sent to Raster Image Printer. Therefore, we would recommend adding a custom paper form and selecting that paper size in the application before printing. That said, there are some instances where you may need to override the paper size within Raster Image Printer, such as when printing oil well logs.

All settings to override paper size are controlled through the profile. Note that configuring a custom paper size within the profile will override any other paper size selection that you have set on the application.
