Hello
I need help printing on A# paper (13x19") using the rear feed. In the Epson Print Layout software (V1.5.8) on a MacBook Pro M2 chip, they do not show the A3 paper size, and when I try to make a custom size, it only allows a size input for a width of 8.5". I then tried to print the 13x19 size via Photoshop, and it does not allow me (or I don't know how) to specify using the rear paper feed, so it prints the image from the 8x10 tray. I have attached two screen shoots of the Epson Print Layout Software dialog boxes I see.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I use the same software release 1.5.8 on Windows. No problem to set a width larger than 8,5 Inch.

Try choosing your paper size from the printer driver first and not from any application.. Your printer is defaulting to the smaller letter size..

I got ahold of a PC and installed Epson Print Center on that machine and wow! There are a completely different set of paper sizes available on the PC, including the A3+ size that you need to print 13x19 paper. I contacted Epson but I don't have much hope for them to release new corrected version for MAC.
