Printing from Indesign CS2 using my Canon MP600R can be fraught with difficulties if I want to use borderless printing.
Even if I think everything is fine, the print which pops out of my printer has a white border… another (expensive) sheet of Canon’s Photo Paper Pro heads for the bin!
Part of the problem is the InDesign print window, which can be confusing and doesn’t always pass on what you ask to the printer.
The other part is that the Canon Mac printer driver won’t let you do borderless printing unless you are using one of their special papers.
As a result you can change the paper to borderless A4…
But as you haven’t changed the paper in the Quality & Media of the print setup, the paper will default back to non-borderless A4 as you can’t use borderless printing with Plain Paper!
Even if you now change the media to some posh (and expensive) Canon paper and print (what you think is borderless), your printout will still come out with white borders.
The key is to change the paper quality before you select the paper type.
Don’t mind me, I just need to go out and buy some more expensive paper…
