I have the exact problem with the Canon G540 on my Windows 10, using plain paper.

This is interesting - I'm waiting to hear back from Canon concerning the printer I have here.

The dots go to the edge of the paper, even on a normal (bordered) print. There should be no ink in this area whatsoever.

I also had to perform Cleaning twice due to lines appearing on Nozzle Check.

On a brand new printer.

That shouldn't happen

When the PT-101 and LU-101 paper arrives i will try the Evaluation Outback print image with and without your ICC profiles and see if dots will disappear.

My suspicion is that these profiles won't work correctly (i.e. as normal icc profiles) on Windows systems and that the dots issue will turn out not to be colour management related?
