Adding New Page Sizes When Printing from Another Software.

If you are looking to add more page sizes, you will need to do this from within the Send to PrintMate Virtual Driver, if printing using the File > Print method. These however will no appear in the Manage Page Sizes list in the PrintMate software.

You can access the Send to PrintMate settings from within your printing software or via Printers & Scanners, as shown below.

  3. Next, enter the Form Name and the desired page size dimensions and click Add Form.
    Important: Please ensure you have the correct unit of measure selected. This will either be in metric (cm) or English (in). If the entered size does not appear after adding the new form, it is often because the size is too large, usually as a result of entering the dimension in an incorrect unit of measure.
