I regurarly switch printing between Legal and Letter size, and now it won't print to Legal. When I open the pdf, it always comes out cropped to letter size.

I've been using PDFCreator for years, and this is the first time I've had this (or really any) problems.

I know how to tell it to change paper sizes, (from Print > Setup > Properties > Advanced and) when I go back it says it's Legal - and it prints to letter size.

I've also gone through the Printers & Faxes > PDFCreator > Printer > Properties > General (and Advanced) > Printing Preference > Advanced, and it's set for Legal.

I even setup my document for Tabloid size, told PDFCreator to print Tabloid and it comes out Letter. Same with ANSI-D. They're both sizes I use often.

I'd been using version, but this problem persists after upgrading to 1.2.3. The system is XP Home, fully updated with more than adequate resources.



Re: Can't print to Legal size - will only print Letter size.

If you are having problems with a specific paper size that you are often using try the fixed paper option in Options -> Program -> Document -> Document properties 2

[X] Use fixed paper size: legal

Re: Can't print to Legal size - will only print Letter size.

I'm having the same problem.   I rarely use sizes other than Letter, so I thought at first that I was doing something wrong. All the settings looked right, so I tried again. Then I noticed that the resulting PDF page looked like a legal-size page printed on letter-size paper.

Example -- This forum printed as letter-size, then printed legal-size (images captured from within PDF reader:
