Changing the print size on a Canon MP 810

I noticed that when printing a document the printing info is reading "Gimp-Print Printing page 1 - 20%" - yet the settings on my computer are all 100%. How can I change this?

Using Gimp , I imagine you are using Linux not Windows. Download the latest driver from the Canon website and make sure its the correct one for Linux. I am not aware of any settings within the 810 that can be changed as print size is governed by the driver and not the printer. Make sure you UNINSTALL the old driver and don't just DELETE it .Good luck

Document size and page size when printing


Its not a setting for page size, that must always be set to the paper size. The best way is to remove the margins in the document by editing it in a PDF editor. Alternatives are a bit of a bodge. When you print try changing the size to 115% of original.

I have a canon mp 240 and it Prints fine if you only need half of the document. It cuts everything in half! Like it reads the header wrong or blows up the words or make extra spaces. How can I get it to...


I thought maybe you have the paper size set to Landscape rather than Portrait. If not, then you might look at:

http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp240#ServiceAndSupport

I did some searching on that site and it yielded the hlep below which may give you some help.


Issue: How do I set my printer so my printout fits the paper size I am using?
Solution: Use the recommended Print Area MP240

Printing Area title-bar.gif To ensure the best print quality, the machine allows a margin along each edge of media. The actual printable area will be the area inside these margins.
Recommended printing area (dark blue):
Canon recommends that you print within this area. (o_darkblue13.jpg)
Printable area (light blue):
The area where it is possible to print. (o_lightblue14.jpg)
However, printing in this area can affect the print quality or the paper feed precision.

o_area15.jpg i_note.gif Note
Borderless Printing
By selecting the Borderless Printing option, you can make prints with no margins.
bullet_s.gif When performing Borderless Printing, slight cropping may occur at the edges since the printed image is enlarged to fill the whole page.
bullet_s.gif For Borderless Printing, use the following paper.
- Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" GP-501
- Photo Paper Glossy GP-502
- Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss SG-201
- Photo Paper Pro Platinum PT-101
- Photo Paper Plus Glossy II PP-201
-Photo Paper Pro II PR-201
- Matte Photo Paper MP-101
Performing Borderless Printing on any other type of paper may substantially reduce printing quality and/or result in printouts with altered color hues.
Borderless Printing on plain paper may result in printouts with reduced quality. Use them only for test printing. You can perform Borderless Printing on plain paper only when printing from your computer.
bullet_s.gif Depending on the type of paper, Borderless Printing may reduce the print quality at the top and bottom edges of the paper or cause these parts to become smudged.

The size of print that comes out of the printer is extremely small even though computer shows regular size. what do i do?


If you're printing an office document, then print size is regulated by the font size chosen in said document.

If you're printing a web page, I take it you have the "print" icon on your toolbar.

Click on the arrow down for the menu, select "Page setup" - Click on font and set the size of font to 10, 12 or whatever you're comfortable with.

The size of your document is determined by your software. Try a print preview before printing to check for correct output size and orientation.

MP760 printing not at 100%


On the Printing Properties/Printing Preferences page, Page Setup tab, check and make sure that 'Normal-size printing' is selected, and that both Page Size and Printer Paper Size are set for the size paper you are using. It sounds like your settings are currently set for Scaled Printing or maybe Poster Printing.
