I am trying to print legal size documents from Open Office (can't) and from GIMP, (can't) on my MacBook Pro, OSx (10.6). I have changed page format to legal, changed default page size for printer to legal, changed page setup everywhere I can find a place to change it, and still, it will only print letter size. What is going on? (Open Office 3.21, GIMP 2.6). I have reinstalled printer driver twice, and all updates that I can find.

Hey there. Have you changed the destination paper size to legal inside the paper handling menu? Here is what I mean:
1. Open Printer menu
2. Select the Paper Handling option
3. Check Scale to fit paper size, also use the drop down "Destination Paper Size" to choose legal.
Let me know if this helps at all

I'm having the same issue with my HP Officejet Pro 8600 N911n and I have changed those settings and it still prints on tray 1 letter. My tray 2 is set to legal and I have no tray block set. Can you help with this? I frequently have to print mixed documents on my mac as well as my windows PC and I can't on either one.

No one available to answer this?
I also have issues when printing from my Mac with the print area. I have loaded the software and the drivers from the disc. I really am considering returning this printer and not buying another HP product.
I can't believe a printer can't tell the difference in paper sizes...

I have HP Officejet Pro 8600 Premium and am trying to print mixed page sizes. I've read multiple forums with similar issues and no fixes.
I just called HP Support and got some folks in India tell me the printer is not "capable" of doing this.
Has anybody had any luck with printing multiple page sizes within one document. (i.e. page 1 is letter sized, page 2 is legal sized, I hit print, and the printer should know to pull from tray 1 for page 1 and tray 2 for page 2)

I understand that you are wanting to be able to print multiple page sizes within one document. When you are selecting a document to print, in the print setting window that does appear. This is where you do select the paper size that you are wanting to print. The option for printing multiple pages sizes is not an option that is available either through HP software and the computers basic print software.
