Cannot Create Custom Page Size

HP2540
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to print standard foldable note cards with an overall size 6.25" x 9.25". Have tried everything on the HP website and others but cannot get the custom size to show in my print setup. Have updated the driver also, but no luck. Help! Am really trying to finish a project within the next several days.

Cannot Create Custom Page Size

Not all HP drivers are able to use custom paper sizes.

Cannot Create Custom Page Size

@Artistic1940

 

Have you created your Custom paper size form?

 

Creating Custom Paper Sizes

 

 

Once created, the form is added to the printer software "paper size" list.

 

If the form is not available, try restarting the printer.

 

Custom forms (apparently) do not show up in every program used for printing.  For example, a member reported several days ago that she could not use the custom form in Stamps.com -- it is unclear how the Stamps software works (no one that reponded to her inquiry uses the software) and it remained unclear why the software could not use / see / detect the form.

 

 

I can offer the following (though it obviously may not apply to your situation):
