print area changes to other

Recommended Posts

We have about 14 macs, most are G-3's on OS 8.6 and one G-4 on OS 9. We have trouble with the print area changing to "other" instead of "one page" this seems to be a random problem and what happens is when you send the drawing to the printer it sends 2 pages instead of one and causes the plotter to crash. You have to pay close attention to the dialogue box as the file spools to catch it.

Does anyone else have problem?

Yes I have seen the same thing. Seems to happen when I switch back and forth beween printers, even if I have the right printer selected when I open the document i want to print. I have made it a habit to check the print area every time I print.
