MP600 with Mac OS X - no borderless printing option?

I want to print an Illustrator doc that I designed as a new-year's card, with borderless printing on my Canon MP600. Only, under the print menu on Word, Preview, Illustrator, etc, the "borderless" section has the "amount of extension" grayed out, and won't do borderless. No matter what paper type I select, no dice...please help!

Thanks, Shannon

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...

Also make sure the paper size is set to a "(Borderless)" version.File > Page Setup > Paper Size > US Letter (borderless) or A4 (Borderless). If you don't the borderless options in the print dialog are disabled.

When using canon pro 9000 with photoshop on a MAC Snow Leopard computer, I cannot print borderless pictures. How can I fix this problem


Preserve your memories forever with borderless printed photographs--while saving money and time by printing from the comfort of your own home. Some printers do not have the option of printing borderless prints, so make sure your printer supports borderless printing before beginning this project.

  • Download your digital photo to your computer from a digital cameramag-glass_10x10.gif, email or the Internet. Save the photo to your hard drive to a folder that you can find later such as "Pictures."
  • Step 2Open your digital photo in a photo-viewing software. Click "Print" from your menu. Go to your printer properties to change your printer's "Page Setup." Access "Properties" through the "Preferences" or "Options" link in your "Print" dialog box. Many software programs have a default margin or border for photos; to print borderless photos, you'll have to remove the default margin.

    I want to print a photo on my Canon MP600 and I want to print to the edges


    That's all done in your printing software, when you click print a window pops up and you select printing preferences. One of the choices is borderless printing, you need to choose the format, size, and type of paper. Just make sure you choose borderlesss to print to the edges.

    Canon MP600, Borderless print issues


    There is probably a "gutter" setting that is trying to give you a border of sorts. Check the advanced print settings and look for something like gutter and turn it off.

    Using iPhoto to create borderless prints To use iPhoto to create borderless prints, please follow all of the steps below:
    1. While logged in as an Administrator, install the latest Canon printer drivers onto your computer (with Mac OS X v10.2 or later as the operating system) and select the appropriate printer as the default.

    2. Launch iPhoto.

    3. From iPhoto, select and open the image you wish to print. (Please refer to the Apple web site for instructions on how to use iPhoto.)

    4. When you are ready to make a print, select from the Menu Bar 'File: Page Setup'.

    5. The Page Setup dialog will appear.

    6. Select the following settings:

      1. Settings: Page Attribute

Then, using your mouse cursor, mouse-over the image and when the Cross-Hairs are over the upper left-hand corner of the portion of the image you wish to print, click and drag from the left to the right in a downwardly diagonal motion, releasing the click at the end of the image selection.

    CANON MP600 - NOT PRINTING IN BLACK INK


    I have had the mp600 for 3 years - worked fine on a couple of different pcs. I switched to a mac and encountered 2 issues - scanner stopped working and above problem of no black ink. The newest driver (just google mp600 driver) fixed the scanner issue. The ink issue has a work around - select non plain paper in the media quality tab, instead use any photo paper setting. Finding this area in a mac can be tricky - in the mini print options window you have to click the small chubby arrow and you will then be given a list of options including quality and media. Presto, black ink returns but probably uses more ink and takes longer to print. I have not found a more elegant solution as you have to select this non default paper option every time.

    When printing to an Epson R1800 have a problem


    Make sure the paper size is not set to US letter sheetfeeder borderless use just US letter. the borderless function slightly enlarges document content to ensure that it bleeds overthe edge. If your has a bleed, use in page setup - US letter sheetfeeder borderless - In the print dialog box click printer button which brings up a warning about using a different settings dialog box, - continue on to the r1800 print dialog box. about midway down is a pull down menu - choose expansion and adjust it to the lowest setting. if your printout does not bleed to the edge bump the expansion adjustment up 1 measure.

    HP Design Jet 500- ODD issue- Cuts off the sheet too early at 4-6


    In my experience with Adobe products and DesignJet Printers, you have to go to Effects in the Printing Preferences and change Resizing Options from Actual Size to Print Documents On: page size that you want.

    It's a weird bug that never seems to get fixed.
