    Default D size layouts OK in preview, print out B size after switch to Windows 10

    When trying to print directly from AutoCAD, my D size layouts print B size on a D size sheet of paper. If I print to PDF first, then plot, the prints come out the correct size. Any ideas?
    These are all drawings and layouts created on my old Windows 7 machine. I did not have any printing issues prior to getting a new computer running Windows 10.
    I tried downloading and installing the latest print driver, but that hasn't helped.

    Could you post a screenshot of your Plot dialog?
