I am a Linux Ubuntu user, not Apple. You will have to pay particular
attention to any Apple OS versions.
I have done it for HP PhotoSmart Pro B9100 printer. It is not painless.
If I recall, you will have to find your printers PostScript Printer
Description ("PPD") file.
_Make backup files first of anything you might change._
In several locations, there will be definition areas. You will have to
create those definitions and
then save the file.
I spent several hours getting comfortable with the material involved
Then copied and renamed and adjusted PPD file based on existing definitions.
Copying a definition closest to the size you want will definitely help,
assuming it works the same.
Caveat: If the printer is not physically able, this will be of no use.

size is reduced to the point of being almost unreadable.
I want to select 4x6 without changing the font size. In Preview and
similar apps the page size is selected in the main print screen and you
don't have to go into Paper Handling.
I used LibreOffice (or OpenOffice) before to print these cards but now
it isn't working.
