new paper size

i wanted to add a paper size that would appear in all apps which print. so in the page setup, i can select that size and not have to give the custom values everytime. any idea how?

go into apsfilter and <ln -sf> to the script step for paper size, and put an icon of your choice for it on the menu bar to call up the terminal. a pain, but it can work. sort of like an icon link to start up <link>
your best out would be to have 2 or more selections of printers (even tho you only had one) to choose from, each with different parameters, and functions. such as paper size. you still gotta go to the console.

luck -O.
