    I just replaced my Win7 RC with the production version (64-bit Pro) and changed the usage of the computer from a spare to my main computer. Now I need to be able to print :)

    I am using a Brother HL-2170W wireless printer and the driver bundled with Win7 found the printer and seems just fine except for one deal-breaker. Unlike the Brother driver, there is no provision to create a custom paper size. If I can't create a custom paper size then I will have to install the Vista driver from Brother and I was hoping to avoid that.

    Any ideas on how to create a custom size?

    ps - I did manage a work-around with the Win7 driver using the margin settings to keep the print area in my paper size but I would still like the real solution.
