Hi,

What software are you using under Windows ME that is defaulting to letter rather than A4?

hi kathy,
the hp software version is A.09.40.03 and the firmware is MR_4.03.
i set the default size in the printer and it stays that way but the director software always reverts back to letter.

Re: officejet g85 paper size

Hi again Paul,

I'm not familiar with the Director software, but I am assuming it's a Windows application since you mentioned running Win ME. Remember that Windows usually takes control of the printer, so even if the printer physically is set to A4, if the software sends a letter size command, the printer will print letter size. You might check to see if, in Director, there is an .ini file or something like that you can edit to change your default in that package to A4.

Good luck!
