Try looking under 'Start|Printers and Faxes|File|Server Properties|Forms'.

printer and on windows98 we would simply use generic
printer and with "Custom" paper settings set the paper
size to 1360 x 1100 for 132 collum printind and 11 inch
eyeline paper. I am not able to do the same on XP Pro.
Can anybody HELP

Dear Friends,

I find this discussion for solving the same problems to apply customized page size. Fortunately, it was successfully solved. My approaches are shown below:

1. Follow Hal's suggestions to create a new form via 'Start|Printers and Faxes|File|Server Properties|Forms'.

2. Restart the computer. Then, go to the printer's properties page ('Start|Printers and Faxes|Select Your Printer|Properties|Devices Settings') to select the paper form for 'Manual Paper Feed'.

Then, it should work well on your side, too. ;)
