How so I do Landscape orientation on Canon Pixma MP500?


When you want to print a document Click on File (at top left hand corner of screen) - click on Print then click on Properties box - Layout tab then select Landscape.
The printer normally defaults to Portrait but sometimes you want to print Landscape. Use this method when you need to print in landscape mode.

You have to set landscape in the printer settings on the computer not just the printer. It varies depending on which program you are using. For example microsoft word you would hit format->page settings landscape.

Try printing to a different printer if possible. This may shed some light on whether the problem is with the printer or with Excel. You could also open the file on a completely different PC and printer to see if something is corrupt in the file. Also try creating a completely new document to see if it will print in landscape. Can you print in landscape orientation from MS Word or another program?

Can't get it to print landscape in microsoft word


If the printer is set up to over-ride program settings then your Word settings for a landscape print will be ignored. To fix this, go to your Printer Settings (accessible from Word's Print window) and look for a paper settings option that will allow the printer to either use the print settings from Word, or set the printer to always print in landscape. If you go with the second option just remember that next time you want to print portrait pages you'll have to revert this setting from landscape to portrait.

UNABLE TO PRINT LANDSCAPE


To print photos in landscape orientation use Irfanview. Install this software and use it to view photos. Very easy settings are available in print options from its options menu.
To print documents in landscape, choose landscape orientation from page layout.
For all other applications, set the orientation from the printer's properties inside the control panel in Windows.
Note: You cannot adjust it to print in landscape for direct copying from the printer's panel.

You do indeed have problem-- the printer is doing what you are telling it to do changing the print from Portrait to Landscape on a dot matrix printer has the same effect as that on a Laser printer, it rotates the print by 90 degrees.

The correct solution of to define a custom size of paper which is the same size as the paper you are printing on.
If you are using Windows 2000, XP, 2003 etc you can create a Custom Size paper in the following way;

  • Ensure you are logged in with administrtor rights
  • Open the Printers Folder
  • Go to the FILE DROP DOWN MENU
  • Select SERVER PROPERTIES
  • Ensure the FORMS tab is selected
  • Tick the CREATE FORM button
  • Enter a NAME for the form
  • Enter the dimensions (be careful of the units you are using --- best results use inches)
  • Do NOT set margins printable areas etc
  • Click on the SAVE button
One you have created the custom size form you should be able to select this by name in the printer driver properties and the software package you are using.
