The paper size of the Word stylesheet is modified by DOORS Next Generation

DNG modifies the Word templates used, specifically the paper size. DNG uses by default the paper size is “Letter” and every time that the publish service is initialized it will update Word templates paper size to “Letter”.

To avoid this behavior you need to remove current value for “publish.PaperSize” property so that the initialize process does not change the paper size set in the Word templates.


This can be done in the application Administration (https://serverName:Port/rm/admin):

  1. on the left side click on Advance Properties
  2. search for publish.PaperSize property and remove current value.
  3. save the change
  4. update your Word stylesheets
  5. execute the publish initialize process

Thanks to Ivan from the DNG team for this information.
