TM-305 - Custom paper size / roller margin workaround???!

Hello all, 1st post, be gentle pls & thx Smiley Wink


1stly, thx for reading my post.  I am after a workaround for this seemingly simple problem, how to I get to a landscape letter paper size, so when I feed in a cut sheet of 8.5x11 in a landscape fashion, it will maximize my top to btm printing on my print?


To clarify, I need 10.75" image to fit on an 11" photo paper (to fit my frame).  But because of the roller, I need to be able to feed the paper into the printer in a landscape fashion, so the roller is on the left side of the image, squeezing space on the side instead of top & bottom.  The margin space for the roller shows up in the print preview (seemingly 20mm).  Alas there is no landscape letter standard size.  Anyone know of a work around?  I've tried making a 11" x 8.5" custom size, but the canon software will not allow...which just plainly is shooting me in the foot.  All I need is a Landscape Letter standard size!  Is that too much to ask for?  Seemingly that is the case right now...  UGH!
