    I am using AR to print a label on a thermal printer. The label size is 4"x17" and I was wondering why the preview window comes up printing it to two pages. It seems to overwrite my paper definitions in the Window Printer preferences of a 4x17 paper?

    I have had similar issues in the past with the odd papersizes associated with thermal label printers. What I have found for me that works best to get around this is before I ever show, run, or print a label is to define a custom papersize and set printer for that report specifically, report.Printer.DeviceName = StringNameOfPrinter is what I use in code to set the printer.

    Thank you for the information, wsmith.

    Also, your PrintWidth + RightMargin + LeftMargin may be greater than your PaperWidth:
