Batch Printing prints all sheets on same size

Question

I've got a Design Jet 500 with a 36" roll feed.

It prints great one sheet at a time.

If I have say "Tent 1" as my active sheet with all the printing prefs set up. Like E size landscape it prints great.

If I have "overview" sheet as the active sheet in D size portrait it prints fine.

If I do a batch print whatever sheet I have active when I initiate the print is now the default print settings and all the sheets that come after use that print setting.

Not really very useful.

Is it my driver for the printer or in VW?

The page size under Design layers is the same.

If you are using various sheet sizes, create viewports and set the various page sizes for each sheet layer.

Hey Katie,

Yes I'm using Viewports, and each one is set with it's own page sizes, and if I print the active viewport it prints fine. When I do a batch print the first sheet prints correctly all other sheets after that print on the same paper size.

This is a HP Designjet 500 driver v6.11

Any thoughts on this?

We had to do a batch print today, and of course we forgot that it didn't work and printed out a bunch of useless plates.
