    Can't create a custom page size


    Hi,

    I'm trying to create a custom size document in Word for using as the basis for artwork. I need it to be 21.2cm x 15cm. Word lets me create a custom size but because it's so close to A5 (14.8 x 21) it automatically resets it to A5 which is no good to me. From trial and error it seems that a custom size needs to be at least 6mm bigger than a set one for Word to accept it. Is there any way to force it to accept my custom size?

    Any suggestions much appreciated.

    If you don't get an answer here (and I don't know it, sorry), try posting in
    the Word newsgroup. That's where the Word experts are.

    Thanks Malke, I'll give that a go if I don't get any joy after a while.
