I don't know a thing about the printer, but this sort of thing can usually be fixed by going to Print Setup rom the print dialog to enter the printer driver and setting the size there, then setting the print dialog to Defined By Driver.
Thanks Peter. I believe I've done that over and over. Setting the size in Page Setup is my second bullet. I'll take another stab at it Tuesday.
Sorry, missed that. Did you leave the page size as set by driver in the print dialog?
Peter, I'm finally circling back to this thread. I have tried everything I can see that is possible between the InDesign print settings and the Page Setup settings. I've struggled with it for weeks now from InDesign and Acrobat. Every single time, the output is only an 8.5x11 chunk of the document (basically a trio of layered sketches).
I do not know if trying from Photoshop will make a difference, but that is my next attempt.
If anyone out there has ever printed a custom, oversized piece from Mac/Lion to an EPSON 1400 successfully, please advise. The printer is supposed to be capable of printing on a roll of paper or transparency. What would be the point of that if there is some length limit that is within the size of an existing sheet such as Super A3/B?
Wow! Sudden serendipitous conclusion to this insanely frustrating issue.
I had found information that the EPSON 1400 should be able to print 44" long output by default. I was searching specifically to find folks that had printed large or panoramic imagery and stumbled onto a UK photography site where a person has mentioned he'd written software that would allow this printer to even print beyond 44". That sounded great.
BUT, the last post on the thread a guy mentioned how he was able to print up to 44" to an EPSON 1400 with ease. The solution, he said, was that the WIDTH of the print area in the page setup must be LESS THAN 13". Why? No explanation.
So I reset my custom size to 12.5x21 inches and BAM! First attempt from InDesign printed successfully. I can work with the margin.
Anyway, in case anyone else runs into this issue this works. Here is a link to the 2009 post that mentions this as well as info regarding printing longer than 44".
This one is solved.
Great, but you forgot to add the link....
Regarding the guy's plugin for extending prints beyond 44", it may be Windows only.
Here is the link to the post that included they guy as well as the final message in that thread that mentioned the less than 13" width that allowed me to print what I needed: http://www.photo-i.co.uk/BB/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=4185
