I created an Aperture book, and wish to print it on my Epson 4800. The book's pages are 8.5 x 11.
I notice the Print dialog is much different than the dialog for simply printing images. One thing in particular has been causing me to pull my hair out! On the “Printer Features: section is something called “Resolution”. I want high quality prints, so I select the highest quality available: 720 x 720.
The thing is, whenever I do that, only part of the book page prints, and it fills the 8.5 x 11 paper!
After much trial and error with various settings I discovered that, for an entire book page to print on a sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper, I must reduce the printer resolution to 360 x 360!
This is non-intuitive. I expect Aperture and/or the Epson driver to scale the book page according to the resolution I choose.
Also of note, if I create a PDF rather than printing to my Epson, the results are correct regardless of the selected printer resolution.
Some of the other settings I'm using are:
Paper Size: US Letter (Maximum)
Scale to fit paper size is “On”
Destination Paper Size: Suggested Paper: US Letter (Maximum)
Scale Down Only: On
So I'm wondering if this is a bug with Aperture and/or the Epson driver, and if anyone knows something else I could try to get my book to print with 720 x 720 resolution?
Thanks in advance!
