Why is my label printing too small or too large?

If you've read through the difference between USB Thermal Printers and System Printers, you know that there are two different ways Label LIVE can print.
This question is for users using a system printer driver.
Windows System Printer Driver Settings
Label LIVE offers a quick "Custom Settings" button on Windows.
Select your printer and hover over the printer icon
Click Custom Settings
Change the paper size
Click OK to save the changes
These settings are saved per design document (lsc). If you change printers you will need to repeat this process for the new printer.
If all label designs use the same label size, you can change the default within the printer driver itself in Windows Settings.
macOS System Printer Driver Settings
In System Preferences (or Settings) choose Printers and Scanners. Select your printer and choose the Default paper size.
