I almost always use the 24 inch roll for my Canon Pro 2000. No matter what size I make the print it prints it exactly that size.
I have some 8.5x11 cut sheet I would like to use. I do the same procedure as with the roll size in PS,
go to settings tell PS what size paper I have
and then click OK
But now it shows the print smaller and a border on 2 sides that is crosshatch. I thought that maybe it would print correctly despite this but no.
It prints exactly what the preview in PS shows? WTF
Why would it arbitrarily down size a print that the same software just sized ?
I know this is simple but man what a fight so far.
Could it be because of this:
The roll has a fixed width, but a variable length. . This means that no matter what aspect ratio your image is, it will print 'properly', because the length automatically adjusts to accommodate any aspect ratio.
The 8.5 by 11 inch paper has a fixed width AND a fixed length. . So, for any aspect ratio other than exactly 8.5 by 11 (or 17 by 22, if rounding up to the nearest whole numbers), in order to fit the entire image on the paper it will have to leave some margins blank, which it then fills in with the crosshatch.
Do you think that this could be the problem?
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
