    You answer does not resolve the issue, ‘Let us see how to add A5 paper size to the Page Setup’. All you have done is describe how to change the paper size without adding that size to the list.

    why a5 itself does not exist in the world and we are obliged to enter the size of it.furthermore it is possible to forget the real size number.

    Annoyed to discover Word 2010 doesn’t offer A5 paper size, which as a card designer I use all the time. The proposed ‘solution’ doesn’t help at all!

    All the world except USA and Canada (and patt of Mexico uses the A series paper sizes. Come on Microsoft, get international. Next time you update Office 2010 put in an A5 paper size. You send out enough updates anyway.
