Printing Large Format from Gimp
When I try to set a large page size (13X19) in the print screen from GIMP, it will not go beyond 8 X 11. What do I have to do to set up to print larger. When I do page set up, it always reverts to defaults. Please Help

I'll be honest man, Gimp isn't quite there when it comes to printing, at least last I checked. I'd try opening up your image in another program when printing time comes.

Hi, did you find a solution to this problem? I am having the exact same problem. I have an a3 printer that wont print a3 with gimp. Very frustrating!! Any help would be most appreciated

RE: Printing Large Format from Gimp
Most home printers are limited to a size of paper size slot that should move when you move past the printheads. For many printers this slot is letter size width or slightly higher but the length is not limited to letter size . This is the trick.
