Hi, my document is set at 8.5”x11” with three 4”x6” images but when I print everything is miniaturized. The screen shows the images as 4”x6” but they are printing more like 1.5”x3”. I’ve printed several documents to my other printer with no issues but I cannot figure out how to make it print accurately to my HP Envy 4500 and I need to finish this project this weekend.

Could it be an issue with your printer settings? Like you might have ‘fit to screen’ checked (think that’s what it’s called). If it’s the setting I’m thinking of, sometimes it has the effect of shrinking objects you’re printing

Hi @MusicTeacher,

Apologies for the delayed response here! If you still require assistance, could you please provide screenshots showing your print settings in Affinity and how this is appearing when printed?

Many thanks in advance :)

I’m not near my printer so is not registered right now but it doesn’t give me any print options, even when the printer is selected. I tried to print another one to see if I had just made a mistake in this document but the other one printed shrunken as well. The bottom of the second image shows the document size, in case it cut off.

iOS doesn’t have print options (other than colour/b&w, single/double sided and page selection).

What size does the preview show on screen when the printer is 'selected'. Full size or half size?

I printed out my version and got full size. Maybe it is printer related? I know I had an issue with my old Epson photo XP850 printing half size but I have since replaced it with the Epson ET 3700. Now it’s all good.
