How to Print an 11 X 17

by Chad Buleen

Many newspapers and magazines print out proof copies of their publications on 11x17 sheets of paper. Printing on 11x17 paper allows the publisher to get a better idea of exactly how the text and graphics in a document will appear when included in the final publication. You may need to adjust your computer's print options to print on 11x17 sheets.

Open the document you want to print.

Click "File."

Select "Print."

Click "Properties."

Click the "Preferences" button, then select the "Paper/Quality" tab.

Click the drop-down menu next to "Paper Size" and select "11x17."

Click "OK," then click "Print."

Warning

  • close If you have not installed a printer that can handle 11x17 documents, the 11x17 option will not appear in the drop-down menu.
