Crystal Reports prior to 7.3.1 have print size set to letter

Version 3

    Problem

    When printing a Crystal report through Service Desk the default paper size is 'Letter'.  In the UK and Europe, the default paper size for printers is usually 'A4' so the reports don't print in the correct size.

     

    Cause

    When a new report is created in Crystal, the default paper size is set to Letter, it is this setting and not the machines preference that is used when the printing commences.

     

    Solution

    Open the report in Crystal and change the default printer settings.  To do this, go to File > Page Setup... in the dialogue that opens, change the Size dropdown from Letter to A4.
