HP 1220c Custom Page SizesI
I cannot figure out how to create custom page sizes with HP1220c. The driver allows you to select Custom1, Custom2, ... but I don't know how to set these sizes.

Also, I want to know if I can create a 13" x 50" custom page size--newer HP wide-format printers support that size.

I have exactly the same question--I cannot find out where and how to set a custom size.

Ok, here's what i did. It worked fine! Now i'm able to print in large formats from AutoCad!


First

Start>Control Panel>Printers

Second


Inside Printers, Right Click and select Run as administrator>Server Properties

Thrid

In "Server Properties", create a New Form with the desired custom paper size and save the new form. Make sure the form doesn't exceed the width of 33cm.

Fourth

Now, You need to find this file: HPWM5122.GPD. It is located at C://Windows/System32/spool/drivers/w32x86/3

Assign the file Administrator privileges (allowance to edit, view, etc) at the file's properties, security tab. Make a security copy of this file in an other folder just in case...

Fifth

Open the file on Notepad and replace the option:customsize lines with these ones

*Option: CUSTOMSIZE
{
*rcNameID: =RCID_DMPAPER_SYSTEM_NAME
*MinSize: PAIR(4720, 6832)
*MaxSize: PAIR(15120,1222096)
*TopMargin: 144
*BottomMargin: 552
*MaxPrintableWidth: 15120
*MinLeftMargin: 240
*CenterPrintable?: FALSE
*Command: CmdSelect
{
*Order: PAGE_SETUP.20
*Cmd: =PCL_CUSTOMSIZE "<1B>*p144y0X"
}
*switch: Orientation
{
*case: PORTRAIT
{
*PrintableOrigin: PAIR(240, 144)
*CursorOrigin: PAIR(240, 0)
}
*case: LANDSCAPE_CC90
{
*PrintableOrigin: PAIR(240, 144)
*CursorOrigin: PAIR(240, 22240)
}
}
}

Close it and save changes.

Note that the only thing i changed is the MaxSize pair value. This changes the maximum size allowed by the printer and enables now to have sheets as long a 33x110 cm. Now that we've changed that value, our printer can now support the custom form we already created on step 3.

Sixth

You are Done! Your new form should now appear as a paper option on the HP1220C's Printer properties>Advanced>Paper size
