Printing help - User Defined paper size
I am looking for help on setting GIMP up to print out on a user define sheet. 3.5"W x 9.125" paper.
Everything I tried wants to print out on corner of a legal size paper.
Or if it does recognize paper size then it only prints a portion.
I know this is vague, but anyone that can help, I will try to explain better....

Printing on Epson WF-7010 printer.
If I save as a png or jpg and copy into word it prints as I want to....but I would prefer to print directly from GIMP

RE: Printing help - User Defined paper size
From my experience, printing in Gimp can be a little wonky.

First try,

New > Create a New Image
Template: A5 (300ppi)
- Change the measurement to [in v] for inches
- Then change the width & height from w 5.847 x 8.267 to
w 3.5 x h 9.125
- click ok

(The template is a shortcut to the size, or you can just type in the width & height)

If that doesn't work, check here:
