New user just purchased. Testing to understand how to get single image on 4 sheets of paper, 5x7 media for now.

Epson P-600 printer, Set media to 5x7, set custom poster to 2x2 with borderless printing setting first.
Get a notification of 3x3 in upper left corner.

If I turn borderless off it says 5x4

If I set driver to fit to page I get 4x3

I am sure I am missing something simple to get 2x2 output?
Please help set me straight.
Thanks

You are over complicating

Set media size as you did.... 5 x 7
Now simplify:
Highlight select the thumb you want.
Now in Prints tab, click on the size print you want.
(You selected 5 x 7 paper)  So click 8 x 10.
Qimage will tell you how many sheets of 5 x 7 it needs to print an 8 x 10. (2x2)
Change size to 11 x 14, and now Qimage tells you that you will need 9 sheets of 5 x 7 paper to print 11 x 14 as a poster  (3x3)
After printing, you will lay them out and tape them together.

Getting them taped together wasn't my objective, sorry for not being clear.

I wanted each page to be equal image size (divided up equally on for separate sheets) to do do a segmented layout without cropping and making 4 separate files. Centered on the page too.
So by selecting 2x2 in this example and selecting an image size doesn't do I what I want apparently.

I know how to crop to do what I want. Was hoping for a faster solution using poster method.
