Default Corel X3 Epson 1280/PowerRIP page size problem

Hey guys, hopefully I'm positing this in the right place (noobie here), but here's the problem I'm having:

I'm using CorelDRAW X3 for the design, have PowerRIP SilkScreen 7.2 for halftones, and a Epson Stylus PHOTO 1280 for a printer. So far everything has gone great printing on tabloid (11x17) size inkjet film. However, I recently decided I want to print larger artwork (actually wider as I'm doing racing shirts and the cars tend to fill up a large portion of the shirt) and the widest the printer will print is 13".

So I bought some 13x18 size film, drew my artwork up, then starting setting up the print settings when I hit my snag. Because the 13x18 is not a standard size (or at least I cannot find it in the list), I cannot seem to set my sheet size within the PowerRIP settings in DRAW so I can print . There is an option for a custom size but for some reason it only allows up to a 9.5" wide sheet (and 44" long ). If I type in 13, I get an error and it resets back to 9.5. If I've completely lost you, here are some screenshots of what I'm talking about:

Does anyone know how I can overcome this? Surely I can change something somewhere so I print on a 13x18 and still have my halftone settings with PowerRIP.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks for taking the time to read.

Try 12.9 wide and smaller in small steps. The 1280 can take 13" film, but may not be able to print 13" wide. Your manual will tell.

I didn't see a Super B film size. The Ulano PowerRIP ScreenPrint versions have Super B, but a PowerRIP Silkscreen version may not.
