GUI-Bug in Document Properties 2 » Use custom paper size


In a new profile I defined a custom paper size here:

Document » Document Properties 2 » Use custom paper size

I save the profile and reopen it, navigate to Document » Document Properties 2 and it looks like:

x Use fixed paper size
   x Use custom paper size
     Width   Height
     342       243

» The settings are greyed out, which is confusing. Are the settings used - and if yes, why are they disabled?

» It is particularly confusing, because PDFCreator uses the Size "a4", and not the custom paper size.

Kind regards,


thank you for the bug report. We think that we have found the cause. It is a bit technical, but it seems to be a bug (or odd behaviour) in VB6 oder a library we are using there.

We are doing some more tests as other items are affected as well.

In the meatime you can reactivate the boxes be de- and reactivating "Use fixed paper size"

kind regards,

Hi Philip

Thank a lot for your answer - and the workaround for reactivating the boxes!

kind regards,

This problem is fixed in the upcoming new version 1.3.0.:-)
