Print with preview on PS 7: Scaled Print Size weird mistake - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

I'm trying to print a 13"x19" sample of a big photomontage in my Epson 1280. The doent size (300 dpi)is 51"x13". When I open the dialog box "print with preview" on PS7, the "Scaled Print Size" at 100% shows a smaller size (41.6"x10.8" which is the 81% of the doent).

    Default Print with preview on PS 7: Scaled Print Size weird mistake

    I'm trying to print a 13"x19" sample of a big photomontage in my Epson 1280. The doent size (300 dpi)is 51"x13". When I open the dialog box "print with preview" on PS7, the "Scaled Print Size" at 100% shows a smaller size (41.6"x10.8" which is the 81% of the doent). If I try to make it bigger changing the percentage, the size never changes. If I try to make it bigger using the bounding box, then the percentage jumps down to 81% and then up while the size is increasing, so only then it shows the real numbers. Once there, if I try to print, the Printer preview shows the initial wrong size. I notice that in some other doents. Sounds familiar to somebody?
    Appreciate your help.

    Pep,

    It has to do with the size of paper you have defined in your page setup, and the margins you have set in the driver. If you do not have "borderless" checked, the amount of margin is read by photoshop and considered in the preview.

    So back to square one - what size paper have you defined in Photoshop under Page Setup?

    YrbkMgr,
    Thanks, but I try with differents sizes (I just need a sample at the actual size) and happens the same. The Page Setup does not change the problem.

    I just need a sample at the actual size




    Copy that portion to clipboard, then File|New accept the defaults, then Paste. Still the same problem?
