I am using 8 1/2 x 11 paper, it's actually an fairly expensive film that I'm printing on. When I print my work, which is on an artboard, I have the artboard set to 5x5 inch. Inside the print dialog box, there seems to be no way to "move" the design around in the little window. The design sits firmly in the middle of the 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper and to save film, I would like to be able to move the design inside the print dialog to show the printer where on the paper to actually print the design. It must be letter or legal size paper as the film only comes in those sizes and to print an item that is 5x5 inches in the middle of the page is to costly due to the wasted film. Is it even possible to move the design around on the print dialog's view of the page? I'm very new to Affinity and trying really hard to move away from Illustrator but Illustrator has no problem allowing me to choose where on the page I would like the image to print so that I don't waste the film. I have included a picture of the print dialog. As shown, the design is sitting in the middle of the page whereas I want to move it to the upper left corner. Thanks for any help!
When I print any file I need to keep the print settings embedded in it, so that in future I can print exactly the same image at the same media settings on the same paper at the same size. Photoshop embeds this information within the file, so that whatever device I print from, years hence it will remain the same. This is vital for limited edition prints and for all my client's work when they reorder prints. I cannot go back through files twenty years old and recreate this without the data being embedded. I don't think this would be difficult to achieve and I see that users of Publisher have asked for the same feature. Please may we have it so that I can stop giving money to Adobe for their overpriced, bloated cash-cow.
