hotfix pls for for AC12 "paper sizes not selectable"

Not applicable
I was going to post this on "wishes" but could find the right category...

Can GS please issue a hotfix for AC12 as they did for AC13 (hotfix 2 build 3235) which fixed the grayed out paper size options when trying to print.

I switch back and forth between an HP 110+nr and an HP 2840 for A4's a real pain when you just want a screen print and don't want to go through Publisher (make a view, place on Layout, save as PDF) and then print though the PDF viewer. This takes time (and every minute counts sometimes); also the file size increases with every view saved and "laid-out".

I know this is a work around you shouldn't have to do but it might help.

Save two (or more) versions of your printers each with a different default paper sizes.
Give them approprate names like HP110-A3 and HP110-A2.

Then when you print just choose the one that suits your drawing paper size.

Or am I mis-understanding the problem.
I have no trouble choosing paper sizes - on PC in version 12.

Versions 6.5 to 27
Dell XPS- i7-6700 @ 3.4Ghz, 16GB ram, GeForce GTX 960 (2GB), Windows 10
Lenovo Thinkpad - i7-1270P 2.20 GHz, 32GB RAM, Nvidia T550, Windows 11

Thanks Barry that's a great idea - I'll tell you if it works.

...and I believe it's a Snow Leopard on Apple Mac problem only - it was working fine with the previous OS...

Moji, that is correct.  Snow Leopard/ArchiCAD issue.
Fixed in latest 13 hotfix, but anybodies guess if GS do likewise for 12.
Keen to see if Barry's tip works for you.

I guess I can set up an A1 using the manage custom sizes from print menu in AC...not ideal but it should work.

Thanks again
