Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Prints too small

Hi there -

My printer prints fine, but it comes out with much smaller font than it should and it only takes up a quarter of the page. I received the printer (ip4200) from a friend and it didn't come with drivers... so downloaded those, but there still seems to be a problem. HELP! Is it because I'm printing on that A4 paper and not regular 8x11? It doesn't seem to be that... The font's supposed to come out 12 and it looks more like 8... and like I said, it's only in the top left-hand corner of the page.

My printer's font is too small for me. I need to enlarge it. How?


Hello

The font on the paper depends entirely on the source, if you are printing from a email, the font may be small on that message.

I'd suggest that you take the text that you want to print, copy it, then open a text editor or word, word pad or similar.

Paste the text there, and then select it all, change the font size to a bigger value, then print it out and see what it looks like.

As far as I know there is no font setting in any printer, it entirely depends on the source. if the source is small the printout will be small.

P Touch 1880 indicates MAX font size, but prints smaller sized label. If I print one word at a time, it prints in MAX size. If I print two or more words, it prints smaller font. Weird, new problem.


Sounds like you may have a maximum length set that keeps you from printing over a certain length of label and it is adjusting your font size to fit that length. You may need a manual to figure out how to reset the length.

Printing is a function of the software that you are using. If for instance you are using Word, you change the print size by clicking on the font size feature. Usually a small window up in the right corner on the tool bar indicates the size of the font, but there are other ways of getting to it. The number lower means smaller, for instance 12 is normal print where 25 is very very large. look around on your printing software.

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.

Some fonts might not be available to use in the printer, make certain it's a true-type font you are using in your document.

Are you printing from MS Word? What software package are you using? Each printer is different and some require software settings.
