transparencies

I need an answer to this question if anybody can help.  I just bought a MG5420 and do not find a property for transparency media.  How do I print a transparency?  All other brands I have owned have a transparency setting for type of paper.  I have heard that one of the photo settings will do the same.  I do not understand why Canon does not have this setting or instructions on what to use.

Re: transparencies

Hello rjh1936.

 

Unfortunately, our printers do not support printing on transparency media.  This paper is not porous enough to soak in our ink.  We do not have any workarounds or alternate settings that we can suggest to use with this media.  I apologize for this inconvenience.
