I cannot print on 11 x 17 paper when trying to print something from Adobe Illustrator. Even when I go to "Page Setup" and select the "Tabloid" option, it still prints on 8.5 x 11 paper causing the images to be cut off. I checked the "Summary" and it states that it will be printed on 11 x 17 paper. I can't figure out the issue. All other programs have allowed me to print on this size. Is this a problem with the printer setup or the program?

-Double-click the Adobe Illustrator icon on your desktop to open the program. Click the File drop-down and select the "New" option.
-Choose the size and color mode for the file and then click the "OK" button.

Adobe Reader can be real pain it the... neck sometimes. But first I would inspect not only the printer setup, but also printer's default print settings. Windows XP has 3 places, where you can see the printer options: 1. Printer properties 2. Print preferences 3. Default print setup. The third one is the one you have to set. When you double click on your printer icon, a print queue window opens. Choose Printer->Properties, go to Advanced tab, and on the bottom there's a button "Default print setup" (I don't have English XP handy, so I'm translating back to English from my version - excuse me if they might appear a little different). It's there you need to set up the default page size and so on.
If this still doesn't help, try opening Acrobat Reader, setting the Page Size Scaling to None, printing something and closing Acrobat Reader. From what I've seen, it tends to remember this setting from previous sessions.
You may also try alternative PDF readers, like Foxit Reader or PDF Xchange Reader.
I had the same question. I found the answer at Canon's site but I can't link directly to the page so here's how I found the solution...
1. Go to the Canon Support site.
2. In the "Please enter your question field" type: How do I Print edge to edge?
3. Hit the "Search" button.
4. Click the #1 (top) search result "How do I Print edge to edge?"
5. Click the #1 (top) solution: "Use Borderless Printing (Mac OS X) MP600
6. Follow the directions.
It seems the main thing you need to do is go to the "Page Setup" dialog. Then make sure you've chosen the MP600 in the "Format for:" popup menu. Finally, in the "Paper Size:" popup, select "A4" then "A4 (borderless). It's a hierarchical menu.
FWIW I still haven't gotten a "perfect" borderless print. Seems you gotta get the paper in there exactly straight...
OK, same problem, I've gotten through the solution. I can print and have the first page and last page on one side of the large sheet and the two inside pages on the other side, so that is foldable into a booklet.
I start with a 4 page (US letter sized) document I wish to print as a booklet on tabloid paper.
In the (page layout or editing program's) print dialogue, I've said print all pages, set it at 1 page per sheet, then clicked the printer properties button to open the Xerox Workcenter 7345PS option dialogue.
In the Xerox dialog on the "Paper/Output" tab, selected the larger (Tabloid, 11x17" in my case) paper size, selected 2-Sided Print. Then I select the "Layout/Watermark" tab and clicked the Booklet Layout radio button, chose "Landscape" for the Page Layout Option.
Note: I saved these settings as "Tabloid Booklet" by clicking the down-arrow to the right of "Driver Defaults" so that I could select them and not have to dial in every one of the settings whilst experimenting.
