Re: change paper format from a4 to letter

Hi Rolf,

When you say "are changing", when are they changing? Presumably you set the defaults to A4. Are they then being changed again to letter?

Are you using the latest printer drivers? Is Windows up-to-date?

Presumably you know that even if the default size is set to A4, if you print a document that is set to print to letter, it will over-ride the A4 setting.
