My Paper size is not listed in the drop down for printing/saving to PDF

If your paper size is not listed in the drop down menu when printing or saving as PDF,  you can create a custom paper size in Windows Print Server Properties so that your paper size will be available.

Here are the instructions to create a custom paper size:

  1. View your system’s printers (there are several ways to get there)
    • Control Panel > Devices and Printers 
    • OR
    • Settings Printers & Scanners
  2. Select any Printer
  3. Select Print Server Properties  on the toolbar above the printers or from Related Settings at the right hand side
  4. Select the Forms tab
  5. Click “Create a New Form” checkbox
  6. Enter the Width and Height
  7. Click OK
Once you complete the above steps, close and re-open DS|Design to see your custom paper size for printing or saving as PDF.
