Printing to 11x17 Paper from ArcGIS in AH-16
Note: Printing from other software (e.g., .pdf files, etc) will be similar to the steps detailed below...
Choose Page and Print Setup from the File menu
For the printer Name, choose \\WWU\ah16-hp9050-2.Huxley.wwu
(this should be the default printer)
For Paper Size, choose 11x17
Choose Portrait or Landscape as appropriate
OPTIONAL: If you have Unchecked the Use Printer Paper Settings box you will need to set the Map Page Size to Tabloid (and choose Portrait or Landscape as appropriate)
Compose map as desired...
When ready to print, choose Print from the File menu
Verify that the settings are still set for the HP 9050 printer
(use the Setup button to modify settings if needed)
If print comes out on 8x11 paper (and not on 11x17 paper)...
Check to make sure there is 11x17 paper loaded in Tray 3
If paper is still not the correct size:
Click the Setup button (see above graphic) to return to the Page and Print Setup sheet
Click the Properties button (next to the hp-9050 box - see top graphic)
In the hp-9050 properties sheet, choose the Paper/Quality tab
Set the Size to 11x17
Set the paper Source to Tray 3
