Cannot set the print size of an image
Submitted by Luis Sobrino
I want the printed image in landscape wiew with a width of 10in. I do the following:
Image -> Print size. In the dialog I enter Width: 9in it automatically sets Height: 6.377in which is the right proportion. I press OK and go to
File -> Page Setup. I enter paper size: Letter, and tick Landscape. I leave the default margins at 6.35mm = 0.25in and press OK. then I go to
File -> Print. In the General tab I press Preferences the printer dialog appears with Paper Size A4 and Orientation Portrait which are not the printer's default preferences. I change the preferences to Letter and Landscape and press OK.
In the Image Settings tab the Width shows as 7.768in and the Height as 5.504in (right proportion). The preview appears in Portrait view with the image filling the width. I attempt to change the width to 10in but it stays at 7.768in. If I press Print now, the image appears on the upper left corner of a landscape page with a width of aproximately 7.77in.
This happened every time I tried.
I did try to print other images in landscape view and the same thing happened although the unchangeble dimensions were slightly different.
If I select portrait view the whole procedure works provided that I do not select the print size of the image too close to the page width minus the margins. I did try to print an image in portrait mode with a width of 8in. Letter paper with 0.25in margins has a widtn of 8.05in. The unchangeble with in the Print, image setting tab was 7.472in which implies side margins of 13.11mm instead of the 6.35mm that were selected
