I am running an iMac, OSX 10.3.9 and Reunion 8, with Canon Pixma IP 4000 printer connected. Am trying to prepare a large chart for printers . Using Virtual Plotter my file is described as one page, with a size designated as 30

Don't use the virtual plotter settings. Just use the custom paper size settings in Page Setup to create a page size to your specifications.

Thanks, Tim. I have tried that ---with the same result.

VelmaSome versions of OS X allowed you to leave the custom paper definition window without saving, which put the new paper size with default letter sized dimensions... something to look at. Also, defining the page size doesn't select it... you have to go back to page setup and manually choose the new page size again.

If these items aren't the problem for you, I don't know what else to suggest.

Eureka!! Many thanks Tim. That second visit to Page Set-up was what I had not done, now it works. Again, many thanks.
