I'm currently testing Affinity with the possibility of switching from Photoshop.  I have an Epson SCP600 printer.  I tried to print from Affinity and only got a print dialog with virtually no parameters.  I assume there must be a way to have Affinity recognize the print driver provided by Epson for my printer, but I have no idea how to do this.  Any help would be appreciated.

Which OS do you use, Windows or Mac OS? Also, can we assuming from your mention of Photoshop that you trialing Affinity Photo? There are two Affinity apps, Photo & Designer, so it is always a good idea to say which OS & which app you are using.


Affinity Photo 1.8.4, Affinity Designer 1.8.4, Affinity Publisher 1.8.4;  2020 iMac 27"; 3.8GHz i7, Radeon Pro 5700, 40GB RAM; macOS 10.15.6
Affinity Photo 
1.8.4.186 & Affinity Designer 1.8.4.4 for iPad; 6th Generation iPad 32 GB; Apple Pencil; iPadOS 14.0.1

Also, can you show us a screen capture of the print dialog?

"PDF" is a pull-down list. What do you get if you click the arrow next to it?

What you see in the screenshot, the various PDF options are what I get when I click the arrow by "PDF".  There doesn't seem to be any way to get an option to print to anything but PDF.

ignore PDF.

Click on actual size if that's what you want,

Hit the double headed arrow by scaling and art boards, go to color matching, colorsync and pick your paper profile and click on print. Should be good to go.

If you want more options, go to print settings on the double headed arrow.High speed, etc.

Thanks Rick!  That's got it.  Seems like a convoluted, non-intuitive, misleading way of getting there but it gets me where I want.  Much thanks.
