Help!  I'm trying to create a #10 envelope template in InDesign. I can set the document size with no problem, but the print presets don't contain the correct media size for a #10 envelope. How do I add a new listing to "Paper Size?" THANX!

I believe you're going to find that's a printer driver setting, rather than an InDesign issue. You've designed a #10 sized document, you need to be able to tell your printer to pick up the (likely manual) feed and define that space over the specified #10 sheet feed to your printer. What kind of printer are you using? If you can share the Make/Model/Feed Trays for your printer, hopefully we can help you get what you want out of that printer. Hope this helps, Randy

The problem arises when I put #10 envelopes in my printer. Then I get the message that the print setup between the program and the printer don't match, and I have to cancel the print.
