[Solved] B3+ paper size

All my printers uses maximum B3+ paper sizes, HP and Epson, but all versions of OpenOffice do not allow me to print these paper sizes forcing me to use other software to make posters of that size. This is tiring.

So, B3 seems to be 353 mm x 500 mm. You can create a custom page size with those dimensions via Format | Page or create a page style and perhaps a template.:

Then make sure you select the correct paper size in the Print dialog and all should be well.

If you find using the other software is tiring, perhaps you might mention this to the providers of that software :lol:

For OO you should be able to create a custom paper size in OO as robleyd suggests, but printing that is dependent on the printer driver, which is a function of the operating system and the manufacturer.

I was actually hoping the printer driver alone would give me options for maximum paper size I can use as specific for the printer. I guess I would have to do manual "User" setting.
Thank you, it works.
