    Hi guys,

    I'm running OSX 10.7 on my iMac, and tried duplex printing on my Canon MP240 printer. I've tried finding the option under 'System Preferences - Print&Scan - Options & Supplies - Drivers' and manually under the print menu of any program I tried to print, without luck.

    I already installed the required drivers, and single page printing works fine.

    Does anyone know how to solve this issue? I saw previous posts with a similar issue on the Canon MP610 but the advice there does not solve my problem.

    Thanks,

    Herman

    What issue? Nowhere on Canon's webpages for the MP240 do I see any mention of duplex printing. If this is the case, then you will have to print your even-numbered pages and then flip your stack over to print the odd-numbered pages or vice-versa.

    HELP! MP610 won't print on place cards size?!

    I need to print some place cards and I am really struggling to print on this size of paper. I am working with CS3 Indesign and have set up a bespoke printing preference, but still nothing - it wants to revert to a larger size paper, and won't recognise the size I have placed in the paper tray (8.5cm x 7.5cm).

    Is there anything I can do? I know others have been able to print placecards using their printers.... surely this is something the MP610 can do?

    many thanks.

    LexiB

    Clearly, the Canon PIXMA M610 does not support the paper size that you are trying to use. However, it does support credit card size paper, which as the same width as yours in landscape mode. Have you tried to create a custom paper size within the New Document dialog box? Failing that, you may setup the document in your desired size and use a carrier sheet to run it through your printer.

    Whatever you do will have to be a workaround because your printer does not support the paper size that you are trying to use.

    I printed table place cards and wedding programs on my laser printer. I bought card stock that a standard 8.5 X 11" size, but was scored with smaller place cards. I think there were 6 per page. That worked very well for me. Maybe you can buy some similar card stock for you project.
