This article was previously published under Q171687


If your default printer is set for a paper size other than Letter or A4, you may receive the following message:

Your paper size is set incorrectly. Your default printer <name of printer>, is not set to Letter or A4 paper size. Select Fix to change it to Letter or Don't Fix to leave it.

  • Cancel - Cancels the operation.
  • Don't Fix - May move objects around on the page to match the default page size setting for the printer.
  • Fix - Will set paper to US Letter.

This message may appear when you are creating a project and when you try to print the project.


If this message appears when you are creating a project, choose Fix. Greetings Workshop will set your page to Letter or A4 paper size for your projects so that you can view and print them correctly.

Anytime during creation or printing, if you choose Don't Fix, the objects on your project will move to fit within the selected page size. If later you choose Fix, the page size will change; however, the objects will not move to accommodate the new page size.

To correct this, you will need to do either of the following:

  • Recreate your project with the correct paper size settings. -or-

  • On your current project, manually move all the objects into the correct location.
