Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

I can't fit a document to page when printing

How can I fit a document to page before printing on Canon MP500? "Page Setup" is not available to me. I don't know if it's because I'm using a Mac or not????? I've tried to follow the directions in my manual with no luck. There must be a way to do this. I need detailed instructions. Thanks!

    Thanks, but "Page setup" is not an option for me on my Mac as it always has been on my PC.

In the program you are using to create your document, go to file, page setup first. Set this and then go to the print dialogue box and do your thing!

How to shrink document to fit screen size when printing


Hi,

Scaled Printing
The procedure for specifying a scaling value and printing a document with pages enlarged or reduced to match the document to the paper size is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and select Scaled Printing from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab.
03896ed1-2953-487d-8dc2-7f603d532728.jpg
figure:Select Scaled Printing for Page Layout on the Page Setup tab
2. Using Page Size, select the page size that was set with your application.
3. Do either of the following to set a scaling factor:
Select a Printer Paper Size.
Select a printer paper size, which is different from the Page Size, from the Printer Paper Size list. If the printer paper size is smaller than the Page Size, the page image will be reduced. If the printer paper size is larger than the page size, the page image will be enlarged.6c3578e0-f243-44b0-aa8e-f7bb7752ed56.jpg

figure:Printer Paper Size on the Page Setup tab
Specify a scaling factor.
Directly type in a value into the Scaling box.

figure:Scaling on the Page Setup tab
The current settings are displayed in the Settings Preview on the left side of the printer driver.
4. Click OK.
When you execute print, the document will be printed with the specified scale.
Note
If the application software with which you created the original has the scaled printing function, configure the settings on your application software. You do not need to also configure the same setting in the printer driver. When Scaled Printing is selected, the Staple Side list box appears grayed out and is unavailable (when Duplex Printing is not selected). When Borderless Printing check box is checked for the Page Layout list, Scaled Printing cannot be selected.
Tip
Selecting Scaled Printing changes the printable area.

Hope this helps

My mother has the canon pixma mx310 all-in-one. She tried to use the scanner tonight, and it randomly didn't work (it did not long ago). It said something about maintenance and to try when it is finished....


A web search suggested thihs would be the reason for the 21140 code>

Issue: "The selected paper size is not supported by your printer..." appears after selecting the Paper Size in the printer driver.

Solution: Use Fit-to-Page Printing (Windows)

Use Fit-to-Page Printing (Windows) The Fit-to-Page function automatically resizes the image to fit the size of the page being used. Letter size image data, for example, will automatically be printed on 4" x 6" size paper. Paper sizes larger than the printer can handle will be available on the Page Setup of the printer driver but will not print unless the Fit-to-Page function is enabled. Note: The Fit-to-Page Printing function is not available when Borderless Printing is selected.
  1. Access the printing preferences by opening the printer Properties / Preferences:

    For Windows Vista
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.
    For Windows XP Home Edition
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows XP Professional Edition
    • Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows 2000/Me/98
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

  2. Click the Page Setup tab.

  3. Specify the 'Fit-to-Page Printing' settings.


    auto_resize_(windows)_2.gif

    (1) Select Fit-to-Page Printing.

    (2) Select the size of original document created in application program. Paper sizes larger than the printer can handle will be available.

    (3) Select the actual size of print media.

  4. Click 'OK'.

WHen printing from MS Word academic version, the canon MX310 will print 1 page across multiple pieces of paper, at random. The drivers have been reinstalled. Any ideas?


Many programs allow you to change the size of the page for the document you are creating. If the size of the page defined in the program is different than the size of the page set in the printer driver, the document may print too small or over multiple pages.

In the application you wish to print from, check for a 'Page Setup' option in the 'File' menu. Make sure that the defined page size in 'Page Setup' matches the printer's settings. If you are unable to locate 'Page Setup', consult the application's 'Help' files or manual.

Printing from pc to printer


You need to set the paper size in page setup everytime you change paper size you want to print to. Other than that you need to enlarge your print size within the program you are using.
