How to create a unique paper size in drawings?

OpenR2OpenR2 OS Professional Posts: 188 ✭✭✭
I want to make an E or F sized drawing. Is there a way to generate an empty drawing with certain dimensions? Or do I have to do that by going to a 3rd party software and creating a blank dwg file and then import as a template?

    I see how to make a new drawing interactively but you can only pick standard sizes. Is there any plans to let the user type in a specific paper size?

    Very much need custom sheet sizes. Working with large 1:1 scale print outs for customer. Custom drawing formats directly in OS would be nice but more important to have full scale print outs.

    I agree with Glen, I often need to have 1:1 sheets for dxf to send out to laser.

    Any update on this? We also need the same for laser cutting parts that need to be sent to laser!
