A small but significant upgrade: Canon updates excellent PRO-1000, allowing for longer custom prints

Among the very few issues I had with the printer was that the printer's driver didn't allow you to make prints longer than just over 23 inches. While it doesn't offer roll printing, many users utilize either 17" x 25" sheet paper or would like to make panoramic prints using roll paper that is manually fed into the printer.
While not something that all users desire, 17" x 25" sheet paper can now be fully utilized by the PRO-1000 with Canon's new firmware update 1.1 for the printer. After installing the update, you will be able to select a custom maximum printable height of 25.5 inches (647.7 millimeters). I can now make 16" x 24" prints (one of my favorite print sizes) on the PRO-1000 using Red River's excellent 17" x 25" Palo Duro SoftGloss Rag.
