Use custom paper sizes to print labels from Acrobat Apps
I had quite a bit of trouble recently trying to get labels to print from Acrobat. I just couldn't get them to line up. Every time I printed, the top and bottom margins would be screwed up. Trying Preview didn't help because it would only print at about 80% size, which also wouldn't print the labels correctly.

I defined a custom paper size in Page Setup. I set both the top and bottom margins to .54 inches. (Apparently, the Epson US Letter size has a .25 top margin and a .54 bottom margin.) Then, I selected "Format for any printer". Then I selected my custom paper size. This is the only way to use custom paper sizes. The next time I printed, the labels lined up correctly.

How do I set custom margins?
Authored by: nhl00 on Dec 11, '02 10:11:05AM

Ok this sounds close to what I am looking for (trying to print photos on 4x6 paper. Currently in page setup I can only select Canon 4x6 (which it tells me is really a 4.71x8.50).

However I can not find the option to set custom page size and margins. I am using OSX 10.1.5 with a canon s800. (I am waiting for my wife's school to receive 10.2 - if I just have to wait, then let me know)

I recently had headaches with setting margins on my Canon S820. Updating to driver v150 from v130 gave me a paper size "Letter borderless," which solved my problem. The new software also adds an ink-level indicator to the BjPrinterUtility. FWIW, I recently switched from Epson to Canon, and I'm glad I did.
