We use letter as our standard size. In PI anything over A4 is considered a larger paper so we are not able to have a difference between Letter & Legal size paper now.

Can the normal size be changed to Letter?

Anything larger than A4 in terms of square is considered as a larger job (that is, if paper width times paper height is greater than A4's square, W * H > 2100 * 2970). It cannot be changed.

Thats funny becuase before when I had this installed it would work with letter size as the normal. I had to re-install it yesterday as a result of a server crash and now A4 is the standard size.

So what that means, since we are in Canada, and don't use A4 we have the following problem.

Letter Size at 8.5" x 11" is larger than A4, so EVERY print job is considered oversize. So now I can't seperate Letter size normal printing and the larger Legal Size 8.5" x 14" and 11" x 17" jobs.

Will this be changed in a future version to allow the admin to specify the base size?
