Paper size is set by the user Locale.


Change the default locale on the server to say English (UK) and any new user
will get created with correct paper size. (won't apply to existing users
with roaming profiles)


If you share your servers with US users you will have to do it another way.


I would suggest a custom ADM to applied to say UK users to set the locale to
English (UK) and use a policy to apply


When your done with the ADM let me know as I need one !!!  (just feeling
lazy today)

Subject: [THIN] A4/Paper Settings


There are a couple of postings about this from the archives, but they are
four years old, so I wanted to confirm if things had changed since 2001.


On one TS2003(Native) server, users logging on are getting Paper size on
their autocreated printers. We want them to have A4. They can change it
manually, but on each logon it reverts to Paper.


What's my best way forward? I understand I can delete
HKCU\printers\settings, but that will only reset the current user. Do I have
to do so for each user? I was sort of expecting \DevModePerUser to be full
of information, but it is almost completely blank.


Any pointers?
