Generic/Text Only printer driver, need custom paper size

Hi,

Have an old dot matrix printer with no drivers.  Using the Generic / Text Only printer driver.  This had been working fine for a couple of months, but now all of a sudden, everything is being rejected by the printer.

The printer has non-standard paper size (it's 7 x 11) and when i go into the generic/text only driver settings, it doesn't have a paper size option for custom.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

hi,
in the "Printers and Fax", select File|Server Properties, then Forms Tab.

Check "Create a new form", specify what you need, and name it as you want.

Right click on your printer and everywhere you see printing preferences,
or advanced... (there are a lot of places in which you have/can set printing properties), indicate new Form.

bye

if you can tell me the model and the manufacturer of your printer and your OS, i can maybe locate a driver for you.
