    .cdsplotinit setting for plotting on 11*17 Reply

     Hello,

    We added a new printer (Ricoh MP C3502). I was able to add it to .cdsplotinit and print both color and B&W in A size.

    How do I make it print B size? What should the B Size 11*17 syntax read?

    I have been experimenting but it always prints only on A size. Below is my printer information.

                    pkgrd03|Ricoh MP C3502: \

                    :manufacturer=Hewlett-Packard: \

                    :type=postscript2: \

                    :spool=lp -dpkgrd03 -o nobanner: \

                    :query=lpstat -opkgrd03: \

                    :remove=cancel $1 pkgrd03: \

                    :resolution#1016: \

                    :maximumPages#10: \

                    :black#1:cyan#1:magenta#1:yellow#1:blue#1:red#1:green#1:white#1: \

                    :paperSize="A" 7500 10100: \

                    :paperSize="Legal" 7500 13150: \

                    :paperSize="A4" 7350 11170 330 330:  \

                   :paperSize="B" 3165 4953 66 86:

    Hi armthy

    You will need to include a PPD file in order to select the correct tray for a postscript printer. Please see COS article 11149694 for more details on PPD setup.

    Best regards
