    In the Printing Preferences, Page Setup tab, are you selecting Legal for Page Size, Letter for Printer Paper Size, and Scaled Printing for Printing Type? If so, you should see Letter->Legal and 77% Scaling in the diagram to the left.

Hi,
Legal size is 11x17 inches and you cannot get a legal length document when selected for landscape.
Landscape means that it is 11 inches high and 17 inches wide.
You need to set it to letter and select 11x17 inches.

How do I copy legal size paper on my canon Pixma MX49 printer


You should be able to change the printer page setup preferences before selecting the option to print.

When you have the document on the screen, go to "Print"...BUT before completing the option to print, look for the "Printer Properties" option and click on Properties......

Look for the option to change the page layout and find the option to change the paper size from Letter to Legal size paper.

When I print a "letter" size document I have to push the green button to make it print. If it is legal it prints automatically to the legal tray.


Obviosly your magazine (Place of taking paper) of the printer is set to legal. The lights is lighting, couse the printer is telling you: You want me to print on letter, but I don have any letter, so please confirm that you want me to print on legal.
In order to avoid this set the printer to all types of paper available.

Can I scan legal size paper with the Canon MP 240


Hi

You can scan the largest size of paper that will fit on the glass area of the scanner (the platten).

If your legal paper fits in this area or, at least the text printed on it fits well within the borders of platten, then you can scan it.

Your scan will show you a preview of the image scanned so you can see if all the text has been scanned from the original document before you save the scanned image on the computer or copy print it.

Legal Paper Size is: 8.5" x 14" (216mm x 356mm)

A4 Paper Size is: 210mm x 297mm

Letter Paper Size is: (8.5" x 11") 216mm X 279mm

This printer's Scanning Width is: A4/Letter

This printer's Scanning Length is: A4/Letter

I hope this helps.

Change legal size to letter size


scan it as a document, re-scale it in required size and save then print in required size.

these adjustments are in your word or office programs. if you need to make it to copy, insert your original in the scanner, in paper tray insert your letter paper, select copy and then re-size, this should do it "on the run".

Printer wont print. It keeps saying PC Load Legal. The printer has paper in it.


Well the printer is telling you to load "Legal Size paper, which is 8.5" X 14" paper.

More than likely, the application you are using is telling the printer to print the page on legal sized paper.

If you want the document to print on "Letter sized paper (8.5" X 11") then in the application, go to the File drop down and select "Page Setup". From within page setup's window, change the paper size to letter and then re-print the job.

My photo subjects seem to print "narrower" than they look on the screen. Like they have been squeezed vertically.Could it be paper-size? I'm using letter size. I work in windows


Question - which looks to have the correct proportions, the print or the screen?
There's always the possibility that your screen is stretching the image and the printer is printing correctly.

How to print envelopes on my printer


Use The Recommended Print Area For the best printing results, adjust the top and bottom margins of your document to within the recommended printing area shown below. Click on the paper size listed for the recommended print area settings: A4 / B5 / A5 / 4 x 6 / 4 x 8 / 5 x 7 / Credit Card, Letter and Legal, Envelopes (DL / COM#10)
Caution: When printing is performed outside the recommended printing area, the top and bottom edges of the paper may curl, the print quality may deteriorate, or the printed side may be smudged.
The printer has both the recommended print area and the printable area, according to the paper size.
05sj00144_01.jpg Recommended print area: This indicates the recommended print area.
05sj00144_02.jpg Printable area: Although this indicates the printable area, degradation of print quality may occur.
Note:
  • Set Borderless Printing to print without margins.
  • In Duplex Printing, the printable area of the paper's header is approximately 2 mm narrower than usual.
