Word 2007: Printing from the wrong tray

October 5th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just had this problem today, a Word 2007 document refused to print from the tray selected in the printer properties. Turns out, you can change the tray setting separately in Word. This setting had been set for some pages, so half the document would print from one tray and the other help from another tray!

To get to the setting, select the Page Layout tab, select the Size drop down and click ‘More paper sizes’.

    Thanks, Canon suggested reinstall the drivers, that did not but your solution worked.
