HP Designjet T1700
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

With other plotters, I could set a custom size to plot.  Driver doesn't seem to have that setting.  When I try to use the Postscript Custom Page Size, it chops the drawing, and paper at about 54 inches - even though I'm giving it ample margins and told it 116in.  Ideas...?  Using 42 in paper on Roll - would like to use entire width by however big the drawing is.

We had that same problem with a T1200 we own.  Wouldn't print longer than around 60" or so.

 

As a work around, we loaded the Designjet 5100PS driver and use that instead because we could set any custom size we need.  I've printed over 22' and 42 wide using that driver on the T1200.  Just be sure to assign the new driver to the same port you're using now.

 

You could probably also use the Designjet 5500PS driver as well.

 

If you load it and it doesn't work, just delete that driver.

I don't work for HP....I just repair their printers.
