Can't use custom paper in AutoCAD

HP DesignJet T730
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Our company bought new HP DesignJet T730 and connected it to network with cable. All computers automatically found and installed printer.

We print only custom size drawings from AutoCAD Civil 3D, we use 2018 and 2019 Civil 3D versions.

I have made video how I have made custom size and in video can be seen problems with it. Main problem I could not select right paper size, because it would jump on other size.

 

On other computers I get error message and can't even select printer.

I have tried to uninstall default drivers and install HP_DesignJet_and_PageWide_XL_Installer, but it have the same problems.

 

Before we have used HP Designjet 500 printer and it worked for many years, but it broke and we bought new HP DesignJet T730 printer.

 

P.S. if I am able to setup custom paper size and try to print. drawing will have bigger top margin and bottom drawing will not be printed (about 3-5 mm).

 

P.S.S.

I have tried to create printer forms in printer server properties window. And tried to select them in AutoCAD page setup window. Some was able to select, but others was not of custom size, but A4 size.

Could not find any useful information in user guide.

Now I checked default printer paper sizes and found here are problems too.

If I select printer and select A4, A3 and A2 paper sizes paper have right size, but if I select A1 and A0 paper sizes images shows only A4 size.

Could not fix problem, so I have decided to reinstall windows 10. Clean installed windows 10, updated windows 10, installed HP DesignJet T730 printer drivers from HP web page, installed AutoCAD Civil 3D 2019 from Autodesk web page.

Have tried to setup layout page setup of old dwg files. I have created new printer setup file and page setup. Used the same printer setup file for other dwg files, worked for 2 dwg files on third file stopped working. All can be seen on this video.

Could not make to work connected with Gigabit Ethernet cable, so change connection to USB cable and now it works. It means problem are with integrated web server in printer.
