Windows 7 Enterprise.

 

But the OS has nothing to do with - where do I put the legal size paper ? It doesn't fit in the tray.

 

But thanks !

Re: How can I print on legal size paper on MX922 ?

Hi, William! I don't know if you've found the answer to your question, but I've been wondering the same thing! On the few occasions I've needed to print on legal-size paper, I've just pulled out the lower papertray, put a sheet or two of legal in on top of the letter-size sheets and closed the tray with a "paper tail" sticking out. It seems ridiculous but it works. However, after seeing your post I pulled the paper tray out, removed the paper and inspected the tray more closely. Lo and behold! - with the paper out, if you look inside the tray to the left, you'll see a "depressable" plastic button adjacent to an arrow with an "LGL" label. It takes a little slight-of-hand, but if you press down on that button and pull at the front of the tray, it slides out into a new locked position -- expanding the extra 3" needed for legal paper and revealing a new "LGL" detent for the paper length adjuster! I'm sure the Canon engineers thought this would be totally obvious to the user but I've owned several Canon printers now and this is the first time, like you, I've been stumped to figure out how to use legal-size. Thanks for posting on the forum so I'd see your question, get motivated by it and finally find the answer to what's been bugging me, too! By the way, Canon, the MX922 is a really great printer! I get wonderful results whether printing photos, web pages or work docs. Really affordable to boot!

timdugas,

 

whoa, that's pretty sweet ! but I wonder why the Canon rep (two replies above yours) didn't answer that . . . she wanted to know what was my operating system . . . LOL

 

but that is great, thank you so much.

 

I do love the printer (and good value), but the wireless sucked to high heaven, it only worked with a direct USB connection. See all the laments here.

yes, it was interesting and kind of funny. I don't know why they asked for the OS . . .

Re: How can I print on legal size paper on MX922 ?

I have the same problem when airprinting from my Garmin Pilot app, which does not provide settings for paper size.  The printer thinks the document is a photo size (too small to use), and gives the out of paper error.   Can the printer be forced to print 8.5x11 regardless of what is coming to it?  Thanks.

Hi NewCanonUser,

 

When printing using Apple AirPrint, the paper size is selected automatically according to the application software being used on the Apple device and the region in which AirPrint is used.  If there is not a selectable paper option in the app you are printing from, you will need to print from the paper tray that is automatically selected.

 

More information on printing via Apple AirPrint can be found here.
