    Hi I had all these sizes in word, but suddenly I can only set it to A4 or Letter (or change the measurements manual).
    Do you know how to get the other sizes (e.g. A5) back?

    is your printer capable of printing A5 sheet?

    was there any change to printer setup on your PC?

    Regards

    HI, My current document is set at 5.5 x 8.5 and I am trying to change the entire document (letter) to 8.5 x 11. I have tried to change my page layout but everytime i try to change it I get the following message and it wont let me change it. “Increasing right margin causes last column to become to narrow in some sections having unevenly spaced columns” What exactly does this mean? How do i change it over to 8.5 x 11???

    Is it possible to set a different page size, for one page, within a document of another page size. I have a multipage document in A4, I want to insert an A3 page size in the middle in landscape orientation, so I can fit a drawing onto the page.
