Select different print paper size permanently

Post by ColorBlind123 » Wed Oct 12, 2016 9:58 pm

I mainly use the program to to small changes to pictures and print them on 10*15 photo paper.

Is there a way to change the default paper size from A4 to 10*15 paper, so that I don't have to change this every time I open the program?

Unfortunately, this seems to be a system-wide setting. What printer model do you use?

I have similar problem. Although my Hp Laser printer is configured to print in A4 paper size in Control Panel, XnView (just like IE) always defaulting paper size to "Letter" instead of A4 in print dialog, probably due to recognizing system locale as English (US). It is very annoying. How can I make XnView to print ALWAYS in A4 size?

Thanks a lot.
