I have 6 sheets in my files. Is it possible to have one sheet size 8.5x11 and the other with size 11x17? I changed the size on 1 page and automatically all pages changed to the new size as well!!! Regards

No, page properties in Draw are global to a file.

However this can be done in Writer via page styles. For instance, you can build a document where common pages are A4-portrait and insert an A3-landscape (which will be folded in the final printout) for large drawings.

I personally use Draw as a scratchpad where I draw my illustrations without caring for page layout (putting several unrelated drawings in the same sheet). I then copy the required drawing and paste it where it belongs in the Writer document.

On the other hand, modern computers can host many many files and you can create folders for them ad nauseam. You could store in a dedicated folder several files, each with its own page size. The "document" would then be the folder instead of a single file. When it comes to printing, the most convenient solution is probably a shell script sending all documents contained in a folder to the printer, so that none is forgotten.
