I have found how to print jobs landscape (on 24" roll, to save paper) but now need to adjust the margin before paper cut and feed.  the lead edge coming out of printer (right side of rotated portrait image) is fine -- about 2 inches -- but trailing edge (left side of image) has less than 1/2 inch margin before paper cut.

 

i don't want to turn off auto feed & cut, as that would require manual paper feed after each job.  manual feed doesn't work if autofeed/cut is enabled, so there's no way to advance a bit extra before the auto cut.   is there any way to adjust the auto feed to get extra margin before the cut?  or center the image to get closer to 1" on each side? (fit/actual/oversize options in size menu don't work.)

 

current print specs:

paper:  Super B/A3

custom scale: 100% (or up to 106%)

choose paper source by PDF size: ON

document size: 14 x 22 inches

image size:  15.75 x 23.62 inches

 

printer ... + finishing = rotate 90 degrees ON

+ print with margins:  standard (have tried other options w/borderless paper selected)

+ paper/quality:  speed max.

 

thanks / kr.

I use photoshop & not sure pdf print. if   images size is    15.75x23.63, I would go to print property

& use custom option to set my print size.     100%

 

width    24           high 18   (  you said 2" margin )  in landscape mode.

 

You must first know your image size, then define the print size for your media loaded .

blank margins were depend on how much space yourself set...
