Letter 8.5 x 11 and Note 8.5 x 11 Options in PostScript Driver


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.1, 3.11
  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups versions 3.1, 3.11


The PostScript printer driver for Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups 3.1 (PSCRIPT.DRV) versions 3.50 to 3.56 provide two paper choice options: Letter 8.5 x 11 and Note 8.5 x 11. These options are identical.


With Windows versions earlier than 3.1, each paper size required a unique, predefined identification value. To create a Windows printer driver for a PostScript printer, the Microsoft Windows Device Development Kit (DDK) utility called MKPRN is used. If two or more paper sizes have the same dimensions, MKPRN either ignores the duplicate or maps it to a unique, predefined paper size. In the case of the PostScript printer driver, the paper sizes Letter 8.5 x 11 and Note 8.5 x 11 were mapped to different paper sizes with the same dimensions.
