I picked up loads of Foolscap paper at the Woolworths closing down sale, however I can't see how to change my Lexmark printer to accomidate this size of paper. Has anybody else had this problem?

Beeswax: Natures petrol tank sealant.

When things are in 3D, is it always the same three dimensions?

A P910 amongst others.

I'm just a bit worried that when I scroll through the paper sizes, Foolscap isn't mentioned.

Probably a silly question, but is there a folio size? That's the same as foolscap.

I don't know the printer in question, but it should be possible to set up a custom paper size if there's no folio size.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

Surely Foolscap paper is A4 paper these days?

I thought that to start with but it doesn't say that on any of the tech sites I've checked.  They all say folio.

  Grr - the assumptions behind the use of the 'these days' qualifier really annoys me.

Heh - now that usage 'these days' seems ok to me because it's just an observation and not trying to justify something on the basis on an undefined change identified only by the 'these days' qualifier [:)]
