Page setup changes for every print

Question

I have an Epson Ink Jet, an old Laserwriter NTX, and an HP 130nr. I have my default "printer setup utility" set to the HP. I have never been able to get the batch print to work and was told it has a bug for now. So printing one at a time after setting everything up correctly in "page setup" and in the "print dialog box" it prints out just fine. Then I go to sheet 2. Select print and it has Epson 820 at 8.5 x 11 setup. I have to change this almost every sheet. Oddly enough it will remember once in while. Mostly it forgets.

Anyone know the answer to this one?

Thanks

Each Sheet Layer has its own printer settings. The defaults for each layer are the default Vectorworks printer settings at the time the sheet layer is created.

try setting the printer settings a sheet layer, rather than in the layer dialog box. The layer dialog box will only set the pariner size for that sheet.

The next sheet layer you make should be the correct size.

Thanks for the info. Changing every sheet did fix the problem. I didn't understand this one and thought I was changing the global setting under page setup. I agree there should be a preferences setting that over rides all the sheet settings. It is powerful but I still forget and it messes me up.
