Q - question

AutoCAD 2015 and 2016 do not allow to select paper size for Designjet T120/T520.

A - answer Older HP Designjet plotter drivers were limited as for the number of custom media formats, which can be stored for the device. To solve this limitation, HP has changed the method of storing custom paper sizes. As a result, custom paper formats can no longer be saved in AutoCAD's .PC3 files.

So if you transmit a customized .PC3 file with your DWG drawing, your custom paper sizes will not be available on the target machine. This behavior depends on the version of HP printer driver. This problem and the options how to solve it are discussed on HP Support web site.

If NO paper formats are displayed, try to install an updated version of the HP printer driver.
