Printing Issues

I have set up a Mac volume on our NT 4.0 Server for printing and files from the 1 Mac we have.  I work in Office where we predominantly print A3 and A1 size images.  The Mac is only allowing itself to print in A4 format.  Does anybody know how to resolve this.  I am assuming it is a driver issue on the Mac.


RE: Printing Issues


It is not the driver or anything it has to do with the ppd. The mac needs the ppd for your printers to be put in the printer descriptions folder, in the system folder.
Go to the site of your printer and go searching for the ppd you wan't
