How do I get a custom size in PSE9. I want to print a 6x8 inch canvas on a piece of paper that is 8x8 inches? Every time I try the canvas is bigger than the paper?

Hi Diane,

Is your printer capable of printing borderless? If not, then the warning is valid and there's isn't enough printable surface to fit the 6x8 image on an 8x8 piece of media.

Fitting in a 6x8 in an 8x8 should only produce this error because of the margins added by the printer. Printing borderless should remove all margins and allow it to fit.

Could you post a screen shot of your Print Dialog?
