get a roll of paper & print it in portrait mode. the longest I ever printer wa 24" x 35 feet.....


on print setting, use portait/vertical mode .


for example, for 24" roll media & you want to print 50" long. so with custom paper :

24" wide

50 feet long.


apply same to other width, 36" 42" etc. but if paper size is shorter & use    landscape  mode.


for example, if roll is 42" wide & image is only 40" x24" 


so in custom mode, enter   42"   wide     25" high....   landscape  mode....   leave some space is better. myself always

leave one inch for margin, also stretch for canvas.


press press    print...    make sure check   image in print box & it should fit within box... or wrong & recheck all.


These are the most basics & everyone whoever  use large format printers , no matter what brand printers ,

must know. also image types, icc profiles etc etc.


Good luck.
