The paper size is stored in the document you save. Just make a dummy document that has all the drawing preferences defined as you like, then open that document each time and save as your new document name to start a new drawing..
The dimensions data is just as important as the paper size. There is a good write up on this subject at http://www.thecadtrain.com/newbie%20setup.htm..
Fix the obvious with the setup requirements and maybe the not so obvious print problem will disappear.
Hope this helps.
Sorry about that link. The period at the end is what broke the link. It should be:
I edited my previous message so as not to down-play your print issues. I didn't mean to infer that you have no problem. I just meant that after many years of repairing main-frame computer problems, this rule has proved reliable. Fix the obvious, and the not-so-obvious many times goes away; but not always.
WinXP has a few small issues also. Can you use most of the two-letter comands in your operating system? Can you fill an ellipse in your operating system? Just curious because both are broke in WinXP using latest QCad version. These issues are minor and the program is an excellent product overall.
I am also frustrated that the author doesn't respond to these issues. Just like you, I would appreciate just a quick acknowledgement "it is broke and we know about it". That would make me happy too. Maybe if enough of us say that, then maybe Andrew will respond so we can have closure that our problem is not unique to us, or simply something that we are doing wrong.
