Mac Canon PRO-10, PRO-1

The following is a hack to allow you to print 11x14 borderless on your Canon printer. Please follow the instructions carefully for best results.

Note - Hacks are by nature not perfect. There is a chance this could not work for you or you may have a small white margin that remains. If you follow all of the instructions this should work. If it does not, there are no further suggestions we can make to fix the issue.

Step 1

Your printer will need to be turned on and connected to your computer.

Go to the Apple Menu > Printers & Scanners

Click on Options and Supplies > Utilities > Open Printer Utility

Mac Detect Width

Click on the drop down menu and select Custom Settings. Uncheck the Detect Paper Width option and click Apply.
