Using an a3 printer with GIMP
I am using an r1900 epson a3 printer. I am trying to print my images on A3 paper however no matter what settings i change they always appear as a4. This is most frustrating. Please has anyone any solutions??

I have change the scale, fit to canvas and page set up all with no effect.

Thanx

There are two things that can limit the printable size:

1) the paper, as declared in the printer settings
2) the printer itself, that has physical limitations. This is reflected to the PC software by the printer driver: wrong driver, wrong size.

First check if some other software (word processor...) can use the A3 printer in all its glory.
