Printing Custom Pages from Microsoft InDesign

One of the advantages of using custom paper is that you can print on any paper you like even if it’s not available in the printer’s stock. However printing on non-standard paper is usually very expensive. To cover this cost, you can opt for a different method of printing your own custom paper. This method involves making your own paper using special software.

Follow these steps to create your customized page size. Go to the control panel, and then click on the “printers” icon. If the User Account Control panel is displayed then click “Internet Options” and then click “Maximize”. Then, click “OK”.

You can locate Word applications on your computer’s desktop if they’re there. Open it and click “Control Panel” on the left. You’ll see the “Pagesicon” to indicate that you are in Internet Explorer version 10. To change your personal paper size, click “Internet Options” from the drop-down menu.

You will see two options in the “Printersdrop-down menu: “estyle” or “print”. Click on the “printoption” to alter the size of your custom paper. A new page will open with the new size you’d like for your paper. If you’d prefer to stick with the default size, simply click “estyle”.

Once you’ve selected the size of your new page, you will be able to see the preview pane. The pane displays the page you just made in advance and its location on your computer. To change the location, click on the “rectangle”, then drag the cursor into the text box to alter it. Use the mouse to highlight the words you wish to use as the border, and then press the “align” key to center the text.

If you are using Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, you will see an item “print” that is your printer’s physical location. Clicking on this will open the file menu. Select the “print” font option and then click “ok”. You can now adjust the size of the paper by clicking “scale” in the “print” menu. It could take some time for the changes to be reflected on your document.

There are two ways to alter your customized paper sizes with printers that support these options. The first is to utilize the “set printing options” command, which is located within your computer’s “control panel” area. Another option is to utilize the Windows print server to access the printer server settings of the printer you want to use. This method is more efficient and allows you to modify settings directly from your printer.

Printers typically come with “printer drivers” if you don’t know what they are. These are software programs that permit your computer to access a variety of standard print drivers, as well as those developed by the printer itself. These software packages are typically updated regularly and therefore it is recommended to make this update yourself. The process is only a few minutes. However, you might have to repeat the process several times to make any adjustments. The easiest method of updating your printer driver is to open Windows and go to “Control Panel” > ” Printing & Printing Options” and double-click “Printers and Faxes”.

After you have successfully updated your driver, you will be required to click “OK”. The new paper size will be added to your document. Make sure to save your document to your desktop in a safe location. You can now print the paper size you have made or alter it to fit the page’s content. You can print directly from your printer by clicking “Print” and then “Fit To Page”.

You can learn more on how to locate and use custom sizes of registered custom paper online by reading the article “Custom Paper Sizes” in the Internet help section. If you need further assistance, search for “printed-paper-sizes” in the search engine. Most operating systems will shortly have updated versions of print drivers for printers that can support registered custom sizes. Microsoft’s email application allows you to request detailed scans of old documents for no cost.

As a final note be aware that any changes you make to a document won’t be immediately implemented in your InDesign document. It will take a while for the system to process your changes. Once they have been processed, all changes you made will be visible in your document. To learn more about how to distribute documents by clicking “Manage document distribution” next to “Date/Size”.
