    Since this is avail for the Amiga, maybe someone here may have an answer. I'm running TP in demo mode from Linux printing to a Canon Pixma Pro-100. I have a picture I resized to 5x7. I put 5x7 in the automatic feed. When I hit print and use TP, I manually set the printout to 5x7 and landscape. After hitting print, it "jams" and does not print. If I do the same thing but leave it as A4 paper but insert 5x7, it prints but not the entire picture.

    I didnt want to buy this software if I couldnt get this to print correctly. I know it will work under Windows but I dont want to use that.

    I don't think your Canon Pixma Pro-100 has PostScript (PS) capabilities, so you can't use the latest PPD options.

    However, you may be able to use the TurboPrint option of printing to PS: and get the printout to end up on paper as you want it to.

    You maybe able to use one or more of the MorphOS programs to load the image and save it as a PDF, which you should be able to print out more easily either with TurboPrint or VPDF or XPDF as the image should be able to be place where you know it would end up within the edges of the paper. I am also unsure how you are transferring the image to the printer, as a document or just as the raw image itself? :-?

    There is always GhostScript as well as an option to print the image out. ;-)

    These are just suggestions, as I don't use TurboPrint at all on MorphOS as I have a PostScript printer which bypasses the TurboPrint program options.
