"2011 smart story couldn't be printed out"

For printing, FTM receives all of its paper size information from the print driver not from the FTM Software. So if you are printing something from FTM (Windows) you must first go through the FTM printing routine, and when the print driver screen comes up you must select the paper size you wish to use.

There is one frustration. I use CutePDF because of the extra large paper sizes available. I find it less frustrating to make CutePDF my default printer before I open FTM, as in some charts it is difficult to have FTM change its printer when you are viewing a chart. However by setting the default printer first, and then creating an FTM chart the paper sizes are available to FTM when you are viewing the chart. You can then change the paper sizes and the chart will reflect the new size.

I routinely print to different printers on different size paper both European and US size designations.
