HP ENVY Photo 6230 All-in-One Printer

Two years ago this question was asked.  Is it still the case that borderless printing cannot be done from an ipad or iphone?  I´ve tried finding an app to do it without success. Its very frustrating as I do all my work on an ipad. Anyone found a workaround?

1)   Not surprising that the question has been asked -- almost every question is asked at least once. 

 

Some questions are asked hundreds of times. 

 

The answers to questions vary -- we are a peer-to-peer community -- our styles and skill levels are different. 

 

Sometimes the answers reflect the amount of detail provided by the person asking the question.  Providing little or no detail in the question might result in an ignored question or - if answered - an imprecise answer based on guessing.

 

2)  Borderless Printing

 

 

 Product Specifications for the HP ENVY Photo 6230 All-in-One Printer (K7G25B)

 

Borderless printing
Yes (up to 8.5 x 11 in, 216 x 297 mm)

 

This printer has always supported Borderless printing.

 

True -- Borderless printing is frequently restricted to certain paper sizes and paper types.

 

True -- There is no way to circumvent a paper size / paper type limitation for any setting, including borderless.

 

True -- Applications, particularly those developed for Mobile devices, might not include all the options, flexibility, and control when compared to the same (similar) applications provided in supported versions of Windows, MacOS, or Linux based Operating System

 

3)  HP Smart - Mobile - is supported on iOS and iPadOS versions as listed in the Apple Store.

 

Within the printer's limitations, HP Smart can print Borderless photos.
