Hi everyone. I received my new Epson 2200 printer today, and I'm having one minor problem. It seems no matter how I tell it to center, or type in margins, or whatever, like I do on all the other Epson printers, the print is always off center--I even change the margins...ugh

I'm running Mac OS X.3 and Photoshop 7.0 (yeah, I'll upgrade to CS soon)...thanks, rg

Working late again? Did you try "Properties", "Page Layout", "More Options", "Center"?

1) Double-check your paper size. If you've set to A3 and you're using Tabloid (Epson makes some papers in one size and some in the other) or vice-versa, you'll get off-center prints that *look* centered on the preview screen.

2) Check to make sure the paper guide is snug but not pinching the paper.

3) Otherwise, use Print With Preview and check all the centering stuff to make sure it's centered. If it is, but it doesn't print centered, something's wrong with your printer, possibly.

I use a 2200 at work, but I have to print from a PC running CS because I don't have a Mac with CS at work. I am printing files I did all the work on on a PowerMac running CS, though, and I never seem to have a problem. My 825, which uses similar drivers, centers everything satisfactorily.

I have a PC using CS.

1) Use the latest printer drivers from Epson.
2) Make sure the page setup on PS matches the page setup on the printer driver.

I'm running 10.2, so I don't know it there's a difference.

Anyway try this suggestion:

In "Print Center" - Macintosh HD/Applications/Utilities/Print Center - select "Stylus Photo 2200 (Standard-Minimize Margins)" as one of your printers. When you actually go to print, select that as your printer. I'm "assuming", of course, that you're having a problem with the top and bottom margins. not left and right.
