How to print a 4X6 recipe card with landscape orientation

HP Recommended
HP Envy 4512

I am trying to print a recipe card on 4X6 index stock using Micorsoft Word.  I want the orientation of the recipe to be landscape, but when I load the printer, I get an error that the paper is too short.  How do I change the way the printer prints so that I can load the paper with portrait orientation, but have it print with landscape orientation?

==============================================================

Welcome to the HP Community.

Reminder to those reading:

Do NOT respond to vermin who post phone numbers or email addresses.

HP does not post phone numbers or email in Community messages.

==============================================================

 

Preparation

 

Factors...

  • Have you installed the Full Feature Software (full driver)?
  • Reminder:  If using USB cable, disconnect the cable between the printer and the computer before installing software.  Connect the cable when instructed to do so.

 

If you have not done so, download-save-install the Full Feature Software for the printer

HP Easy Start Printer Setup Software 

 

About 2/3 of the way through the setup, you will be given the opportunity to select the software - select the "Full" driver set (as opposed to the basic driver).

 

After the software is installed, Restart the computer and log in.

 

Full driver provides print and scan functions (even if HP Smart continues to be stubborn).

==========================================================================

Next,

Load the paper into the printer according to the instructions in the User Guide

Small paper, print side down, short ends front and back.

(Page 😎

 

 

Next, tell the printer about the paper.

 

Check / Adjust / Retain the Paper at the Printer Display Panel

 

Note:  This option is not applicable to printers that lack a printer display panel and might not be available on all printer models that do include a printer display panel.

 

Open Printer Tray,

If you have not yet done so, add desired paper type

Wait a couple of seconds…

Close Tray

IF applicable for your printer:

Look for a message on the Printer Control / Display Panel,

Click Modify (wording varies), set the paper size and type, Click OK

 

NOTE

If the size of your Paper Size is not in the Drop-down menu,

If the selection is available in the list:

Select Custom (likely the last selection in the list)

 

And / Or

Embedded Web Server (EWS)

 

 Note:  This option is not applicable to printers connected via a USB printer cable (no network connection).

 

 

If the printer is on the network,

If the EWS feature is supported on your printer,

Use the Embedded Web Server (EWS) to view / configure your printer.

NOTE:  Laser printer options in EWS are very different from those offered in InkJet Printers.

 

Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar

Tab Settings > Preferences > Tray and Paper Management

If applicable, check the Advanced section (at the bottom of the Tray and Paper Management menu)

Click Apply to save changes

 

NOTE:  If the size of the Paper Size is not in the Drop-down menu, Select Custom (likely the last selection in the list)

 

NOTE 2:  EWS is also available in HP Smart Windows and HP Smart Mobile > Settings > Advanced

 

Set the Preferences – Windows

 

NOTE:  This section is not applicable to Mobile Printing.

 

Printing Preferences are available directly from the driver or might be called "Printer Properties" / "Shortcuts" (or similar) from within printing software / applications.

 

Notes

  • Generally, Ignore this section when not relevant – for example, when using Word > Mailings > Envelopes.
  • In the case of PDF printing, set the Preferences (below) or set the Properties during the job setup.

 

That said, consider:

Make sure the Printing Preferences shortcut is set to "Everyday Printing" or something equally benign.  For example, don't leave the shortcut set to Booklet printing choices or other custom setups that are completely contrary to printing envelopes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Check / enable the printer as the “Default Printer”

 

Settings > Devices > Printers and scanners

UNCHECK (clear box) Let Windows manage my default printer

Select (Left-Click) your printer from the list of printers > Manage > Set as Default

 

 

  1. Select and adjust settings in each category for the Media (kind of paper), source (tray), and paper size.

 

Settings > Devices > Printers and scanners

Left-Click on (your) Printer > Manage > Printing Preferences

 

Next

Tab Printing Shortcuts > Click / Highlight your preferred shortcut > Click Apply > Click OK to exit

 

NOTE - Make changes to a Shortcut

  • Select a shortcut and adjust the settings for paper, source (tray), other settings / Tabs
  • Scan Menu for HP Scan >>  If there is a More > section, check / adjust settings in the sub-sections > Click OK to save sub-menu changes
  • If supported, save the edited shortcut or use “Save As” or “Create Custom Shortcut” to save as a new / different file name
  • Click OK to save the setup
