iPad page size printing Pro8600 Plus

HP Recommended

I used to be able to print from my iPad, over my wireless network, to my printer. The printer would automatically select the appropriate page size based upon what paper size it pulled out of the tray. For example, I could print 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper and it selected that size correctly. I could follow that up later with 4 x 6 photo paper, and my printer would immediately recognize that size and print on it. The printer no longer does this. And there is no way on an iPad to set page size. Evidently the last software update for my printer remove this feature. I cannot for the life of me figure out why HP would do that.

Hi @Old_Salt,


I'd like to help with the printing issue.


Print documents, photos, and webpages using AirPrint.


  1. Make sure the printer is turned on, ink cartridges are installed, and plain paper is loaded in the main tray.

  2. Open the item you want to print, and then tap the Share icon  or  .

  3. Tap Print or the Print icon  to open Printer Options.

  4. Tap Select Printer to select your printer.

  5. Change any of the following print job settings. Available settings vary depending on the app you are printing from, the print job type, and your printer.

    • Paper: Make any paper size changes on the printer. AirPrint automatically detects the paper size loaded in the printer or the size selected on the printer control panel. If the detected size is different than the paper in the tray, an error might display asking to confirm the size.

    • Number of copies: Select how many copies you want to print.

    • Black & White: Select to print in grayscale. This option only displays for color printers.

    • Double-sided printing: Print on both sides of the paper for certain file types.

    • Page range: Select specific pages within a document or webpage to print.
