Hi, I just switched from PC to mac and im very happy with my choice but the printer I use (Canon pixma ip3000) is still connected to the home PC.

I can print from my macbook using my home wi-fi network but the thing is, when im trying to print from my mac the page only prints on a quarter of the paper. I checked every settings possible...

Do anyone know what could cause this kinda problem?

thx a lot

I would suggest making sure you have the latest drivers installed on your Mac. You should be able to get them from Canon's site.

Good luck!
