Is a HP Deskjet 5650 capable of printing custom length banners? I have everything selected on the printer page that has anything to do with printing banners with no result.

I am using Inkscape to create banners and then print the banners.

I am trying to print a 40 inch long banner. (I will generally be
printing banners between 24 and 40 inches long.) When I try to print the
banner, only the first page prints. Everything then stops like the
print job was completed. I get great one page banners but....

I am using a PC running XP with an HP Deskjet 5650 printer. I then tried to print a
banner using my second computer which has Win 98se and a different HP printer
with the same results. I conclude that I am not setting Inkscape
correctly for printing the banner of this size. Is this a correct assumption?

I am using Inkscape 0.42.2. The banners look great on the screen but... Please
help me to print the complete banner(s).

Thank you so much in advance.

Use the Custom Paper Size dialog box to print on a special paper size
From their specs....

Also are you sure your not doing anything too prahically intensive that is overloading the memory on the printer?

Thank you for your response and very good point.

I'm trying to print banners that are 24 to about 40 inches long X 8.5 inches wide. That's only 3 to 4 continuous pages long.

You can't "overload" a printer's memory. If the memory fills, Windows will wait until it empties before sending the rest of the job.
