Retain the page set up settings when the file is closed

I send pdf’s to other consultants, so I always set for ‘any printer’. Paper size always shows ‘Other’ (although it also shows A3 dimensions) and so I have to change it to A3. Even if I then save that file and reopen it, the A3 setting is lost and it has defaulted back to ‘Other’. This is such a waste of time having to remember to reset every time I open a file. If I leave it at ‘Other’, both of my A3 printers will jam, presumably because they are expecting ‘Other’ when they only have A3 paper. Can this be resolved?

what are your “Printers and Scaners” settings in System Preferences…

is it set for your printer?


I have 4 printers set in the Printers and Scanners, the default is my A4 laser, plus two A3 lasers and a label printer. I don’t have this behaviour with any other program I have, or have used, since the 1980’s!
I note this goes back to at least June 2015 - not good enough!

So I contacted Sketchup support and was told yesterday that this is a known issue, that the SketchUp Team is working on it, and that they hope to have it fixed in the future.

Very annoying. It is only with SU and LO programs, please fix this.
