Word – Can I print a custom paper on standsard size in word

microsoft word

I have a word document that was created using 9 X 6 as the custom paper. I dont have that size paper just the normal 8 x 11.5. How can I setup word to print the document with its current size but on the normal paper?

If you do not want Word to scale (shrink) the document when you print it you should disable zoom or scaling in the print options.

For Microsoft Word 2003, go to Office Icon -> Print. In the dialog that appears, select "No Scaling" for the "Scale to paper size option". Note that depending on what your printer limits and your document margins are, this could leave parts of your document cropped off.

If I misunderstood your question, and you do want it to scale (i.e. fit on 8.5" x 11" letter paper) simply select "Letter" under the same option mentioned above.
