    This is in reply to a request from a customer. There are two ways that I know of to create custom paper sizes. I'll assume that you are using MS Word and Windows 2000 XP.
 
    First Way (recommended)
  • Open the Printer Explorer
  • Click on the "File" menu
  • Select "Server Properties" in the menu list
  • Create a custom "form" (see the attached picture "Custom_Paper_Forms_WinXP.gif")
  • Close everything
  • Start MS Word
  • Click on "File", then "Page Setup"
  • Click on the "Paper Size" tab
  • Select your newly created paper size.
  • Select on "File", then "Print", and select the PDF reDirect v2 Printer
 
    Second Way ( not recommended - as it is not permanent)
  • Start MS Word
  • Click on "File", then "Page Setup"
  • Click on the "Paper Size" tab
  • Select "Custom Size" as the paper size, and enter the paper dimensions
  • Select on "File", then "Print", and select the PDF reDirect v2 Printer
  • Click on the "Properties" button
    Click on the "Advanced" button
  • Select "Custom Postscript Paper" as the paper size (see picture "Custom_Paper_Sizes.gif")
  • Enter (again) the paper dimensions to match that of the custom Word document
    Close the Printer properties window, and continue printing
