Calcomp Techjet 5500 won't rotate plot

Can't print a 36x24 dwf in landscape, always plots portrait. I can plot
just fine from cad using the Autocad driver but not if I use the windows
printer driver. I use the dwf format in order to print spreadsheets in cad.
They won't plot using the Autocad driver(or I don't know how)
Calcomp Techjet 5500 36" roll feed w/72 meg ram
Latest NT driver I could find at Calgrahic web site.
Dell laptop
OS: XP Pro
1 gig ram
P4 1.9 processor

Any help or ideas much appreciated

Did you change the orientation to Landscape in the Windows driver before
plotting to the Window driver?

Perhaps you should also post this in the print-plot discussion area, found
under AutoCAD at http://discussion.autodesk.com

I believe the orientation was at landscape, that's what is showing now. I
have reposted to print-plot also. One thing I noticed, the windows driver
does not have all the paper sizes available that are listed in the autocad
driver, such as Arch D and Arch D expanded.

Perhaps the Windows driver is set not to display them? Or you have to select
an option to display more sizes? Or you can create a custom sheet size in
the Windows driver?

Dean,
Thanks, I'll try the custom page size. Seems like I did this when my OS was
NT4. Sometimes I have trouble finding things in XP that I knew in NT.
