Thank you for using the HP forum.

Error : it will not print correct paper size format direct from Autocad 2106.


Problem Description: paper settings issue


The possible cause could be: driver settings issue


Corrective Action:


just follow the below steps correctly and start printing.


1. First need to check with the driver settings installed in the pc.

2. Go to control panel-> select driver> right click on the driver > printer properties > advanced > printing defaults
select paper size, paper source and paper type. ( it has to be done only once in the driver, not for every print)

3. Recheck same settings in preferences > right click the driver> printing preferences > paper size, source and type.

4. Open the file in auto cadd > ctrl +p > select printer driver > properties > custom properties > select paper size, paper source and paper type. select orientation from layout tab> click ok, come back to auto cad print screen> select window > check the preview and then plot.

5. Step 4 settings has to be followed for every print as application settings will override driver settings.
