*1 To improve the print quality and paper feeding when using paper other than Canon genuine paper, create a custom paper by using Media Configuration Tool and add it to the printer.
These media types can be used as custom paper standards.

 If you have added a new media type using the Media Configuration Tool, open the Canon IJ Printer Utility2, and from Media Information, select Update Media Information (Correct Media Information) and carry out a driver media information update.
When printing on a newly added media type, change both the media settings on the printer driver and the registered media information on the printer to those of the new media.

 When you set Media Type to Matte Photo Paper, Premium Fine Art Rough, or Photo Paper Pro Premium Matte A from the Quality & Media pop-up menu of the print dialog, we recommend that you set Paper Size to 4 x 6, L, or "XXX Margin 25" in the print dialog.
