Default paper size on Canon Printers
Authored by: westont on Nov 26, '01 02:11:49AM

This method for setting the default paper size on Epson printers is also applicable for Canon Inkjet printers as well.

In this case open the /Library/Printers/Canon/BJPrinter/PMs folder and locate the plugin for your printer model. Control-click on the plugin and choose "Show Package Contents".

Open /Contents/Resources/English.lproj/Localizable.strings in TextEdit and change the line that reads "DefaultPaperSize" = "na-letter" to "DefaultPaperSize" = "iso-a4". Once you save the changes the new setting is effective the next time you use the printer.

Note: You will probably need Admin or root access to be able to save the changes.
