I had this problem the other month - Click Start, Settings, Printers & Faxes
Click on the File Menu
Go to Server Properties
Tick the box Create a new form - type in a name for the form
Type in the dimensions of the paper

This will now appear as an additional form for any printers you have installed

Hope that helps

 I got your point. but the problem is that the printer will eject the whole page. if i have a dimension that is 8.50 inches by 5.50 inches meaning half of the paper. What setting should i use in order that the paper will stop or eject at the half of the page?

Have you tried setting the Units to English, height to 5.50 and the Width to 8.50 ?

yes, its units is set to english. but the problem is when it reaches the half page the printer positions the paper in a tear off. mean the whole page. what i want is if it finish printing it will just position to the halfpage and not the whole page.
If it is still printing then it sounds lke the program you are printing from may have some large margins set or something... or the paper size is wrong. What program are you printing from?
