Well, I've searched to no avail so I'm hoping you guys can help.

In our company we use a laser printer to print A3 & A4 and a HP Deskjet for A2 upwards via a roll. Often we have drawings with multiple sheets of varying sizes. As an example we'll have the fabrication assembly drawing in large format and then have several sheets for the individual parts as they go to many departments depending on what is needed (Fab shop, machine shop etc).

So when you go to print set up you can allocate the various page sizes but only one printer. messing about loading the feeder with each size, unloading/loading the roll is a major pain, along with trimming down what is 24" paper to smaller sizes is not only wasteful it's damn-right soul destroying. So it means setting up for one an stating which pages you want then having to go thro it all again for another printer, it's barmy. Surely there's a way to setup your sheets for multiple printers so you just hit print?
