Regression:
my CP1700 doesn't print A3 or legal only A4 using the ppd provided by hplip 3.9.12
- but using the ppd provided by ruehlchr (above) it works just fine!

--> there are 2 definitions for CP1700 in hplip-3.9.12/prnt/drv/hpcups.drv
// <%DJ9xxVIP:Normal%>

ModelName "HP Color Inkjet cp1700"
      Attribute "NickName" "" "HP Color Inkjet cp1700, $Version"
      Attribute "ShortNickName" "" "HP Color Inkjet cp1700"
      Attribute "1284DeviceID" "" "MFG:HP;MDL:hp color inkjet cp1700;DES:hp color inkjet cp1700;"
      PCFileName "hp-color_inkjet_cp1700.ppd"
      Attribute "Product" "" "(HP Color Inkjet cp1700 Printer)"

// <%DJ9xxVIP:LargeFormatSuperB%>
    {
      ModelName "HP Color Inkjet Printer cp1700"
      Attribute "NickName" "" "HP Color Inkjet Printer cp1700, $Version"
      Attribute "ShortNickName" "" "HP Color Inkjet Printer cp1700"
      Attribute "1284DeviceID" "" "MFG:HP;MDL:color inkjet printer cp1700;DES:color inkjet printer cp1700;"
      PCFileName "hp-color_inkjet_printer_cp1700.ppd"
      Attribute "Product" "" "(HP Color Inkjet cp1700 Printer)"
      Attribute "Product" "" "(HP Color Inkjet cp1700ps Printer)"
      Attribute "Product" "" "(HP Color Inkjet cp1700d Printer)"
    }

this means there are 2 ppds for cp1700:
hp-color_inkjet_printer_cp1700.ppd has A3
hp-color_inkjet_cp1700.ppd has not.
but neither prints the A3 area, only A4

p.s. the ppd for my Officejet 2800 is broken too: only A4 part is printed - see bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/449581
