Go into start/controlpanel/printers/rightclickprinter and then go through the set up that you are wanting. Make sure you set the default paper size there, save it all and exit. The rightclick on the printer again in Control Panel and set the printer as default.

In your application(s) ensure you set the printer settings correctly.

Hope that helps.

I'm sorry, my question was about "other sizes".
There are about 10 selectable page sizes in the printer
setup. My desirable page size is different from all of them.
In erlier systems Epson provided a "user defined" option
(as MS Word it does).

Select the Forms tab, then create a new form.

This applies to NT, 2K and XP.  The new form is global- it is available on any printer the form will fit on.

Note that some applications are not well behaved and will not look for custom forms.  If you can see the new form in WordPad when the printer is selected, the form is OK.
