Custom Printing Sizes X-RIP OSX10.2.2


How do you print a non standard size (eg 48 x 24). In the print center dialogue "Settings" I see the custom paper size choice but when I set one up and save I don't know how to access. Can't do anything under Set Print Area either.

I don't have X-Rip, so I am not sure how it acts with OS X, but we use HP's Printer description, and it sounds similar.

If you are using the custom paper size in Apple's Page Setup Dialog, do the page setup for "Any Printer". There you will see any custom page sizes you set up.

The custom sizes are saved with Apple's driver not your printers PPD. So, if you do the page setup for the name of your printer, you will only see the page sizes offered by your printer's description file, or the printer description provided by X-Rip.

I hope this is helpful, but it may be different with X-Rip.

All I know is that printing in OS X is not as simple as it was in OS 9 and earlier.
