How to print a single envelope on a Canon MX922

I'm trying to figure out if there is an easy way to print single envelopes without having to take all the paper out of the lower tray, readjust the guides for an envelope, print the envelope, readjust the guides for full size paper, then putting the full size paper back in the lower tray. 

 

I'm thinking that I will have to buy a 2nd lower tray if I can't get this problem resolved.

Hi Andy5215,

 

It sounds like you are doing everything correctly.  While you can load a stack of envelopes or paper in the tray, if you wish to switch back and forth between media, you will need to remove and adjust the guides for each change.

Re: How to print a single envelope on a Canon MX922

I have the Canon Pixma 860 and bought the 922 last month as I wanted the wifi feature.  I am so disappointed in the 922 compared to the 860.  The 860 is quiet vs the 922, the option for printing envelopes on the 860 is very easy as you just put in the rear feeder, no need to empty the paper tray, print and then reload papertray! What a pain the the butt! Who thought that through???   Very Very disappointed in the 922 so far.

I too am very disappointed that the 922 cannot easily print a single or multiple envelopes. I really miss the rear tray of my older (now dead) Canon printer. I am disappointed that Canon removed that feature.

Re: How to print a single envelope on a Canon MX922

I just managed:

1- in the lower tray place the envelops «face down» as indicated on the left icon.
2- secure the envelops by moving the black and white plastic movers (only know the french name of those things), make sure the envelops are pushed to the bottom of the tray, the point that goes first into the printer
3- customize your envelop options on your computer and print....

Wasted more than 30min to manage this all.

Merci.

Re: How to print a single envelope on a Canon MX922

I dont know if you realise, but there are two trays one on top of the other and the one above should be used to print a single envelope. Its fairly simple actally and you do not have to empty the lower tray to do this.

Re: How to print a single envelope on a Canon MX922

Yes, the upper tray can print envelopes, but it is very limited on envelope size. I believe that the upper tray cannot print business size (#10), which is the size I need to print most often. My previous Canon handled a large number of envelope sizes from its rear tray, without having to disturb the paper already loaded. That is the capability I miss.

Yes! I feel the exact same way! Not sure what they were thinking...or maybe that was the problem. Not thinking. : (

Re: How to print a single envelope on a Canon MX922

Ditto to everything everyone says.  I too had an MX870 which got fried in a huge storm so I had no choice but replace it with an MX922, seriously lacking in fairly obvious features.  For shame Canon, why did you have to mess with success?
