Tiled printing: small white edge?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to print an A3-sized document on 2x A4 paper. Unfortuneately, no matter which setting I choose, I always get a small white edge (~4mm; see photo). AP seems to think, it can print on this area, but can't (because my printer does not support edgeless printing).

I tried both "Shrink to printable" and "Fit to printable" options. I tried both "Defined by driver" and "A4" settings with the two options mentioned before. Of course, I could always play around with the "Sclae" and "Overlap" option, but this doesn't seem to be the perfect solution. I haven't chosen the "Include Margin" option though, because it only adds an edge around the document, so the problem in the middle of the document remains unadressed.

My printer is a Samsung M2070 (edgeless printing is not supported, so this small edge will always remain).

 

Is there anything else I can do in AP?

This does not work to print on TWO pages, as you said, that your printer is not able to print to the edge. Scale 100% and the overlap field needs a value ... BUT tile printing works only in theory ... when it comes to stitching / glueing the papers together, as there are no additional markers on the printouts.

Good workaround until this "bug" (an unusable feature is a bug IMO) is fixed: Export as PDF and use the poster print function from Acrobat / Foxit or whatever.
