I left the paper size at the normal sheet size of 8.5x11 but put my content to fit on smaller sheet. I then put the small paper into the printer and did a test print.
It worked! While some may not like such a workaround I tend to just plow ahead, get it done and forget trying to set the paper size.
I am using:
Software: Microsoft Word 2002
Operating System: Office XP, Home Edition 2002,
Service Pack 2
Computer: Gateway laptop,Pentium M
1.73Ghz, 1.25GB of RAM
My problem: I want to print my wedding vows in Index Cards and when I sized the card that I have on hand, they were 6 x 4s. Since there wasn't any same size in my Page Setup options, I tried changing my setup via the Custom Option. It was highlighted. I moved my mouse to type in my Width change but my paper size went back to the original 8.8 x 11". It seems that I can only change my page layout to the preset selections while my custom selection just don't work.
Please help...I am getting married this month and want to type in our wedding vows in Index cards for ease (like cheat sheets)of reading and I can't do it. I must have changed something in my computer's preference sometime in the past that I cannot recall now. If someone can help me immediately, please....I only have a week of singleblessedness to go...
