    (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)

Click OK



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)
