Predefined forms list

The list contains essential information about the existing predefined forms, their visibility, name and description. If the check box in front is checked the predefined from will be visible in the Page size drop down list from the Printing Preferences page. Selecting a predefined form will show its properties in the fields below the list. By default the forms list will show All usable forms, however you can filter them to show which are System defined forms and the User defined forms.

New
Pressing the New button creates a custom predefined form. The fields below the list become enabled and you can enter a form name, description, size, margins and select its visibility.

Copy
Pressing the Copy button creates a custom predefined form with the same properties as the selected form. You can adjust the size and margins for the copied form.

Delete
Pressing the Delete button removes the selected predefined form. Only custom forms can be deleted, so the button is not enabled for system forms.

Select the measurement units for the predefined form's width and hight. The available values are millimeters, inches and points. Changing the units will recalculate the values for width and height.
