Change the default paper size in Wordpad


Is there a way to change the default paper size for new documents in Wordpad from Letter to A4. Wordpad seems to remember only the margins, but not the paper size.



Might I suggest getting OpenOffice?  You've already started seeing the limitations of trying to use something as unsophisticated as WordPad (barely a step-up from Notepad, IMO) for much.  OpenOffice is free and would give you many more options and features.
