I am interested in using it and just wanted to make sure there was not something I did not think about.

In Garment Creator, you just tell it what size of platen you want to use in the layout section. In RIP it would be similar.

Not an Epson F2000 user here, but one thing you be aware of is that your heat press may not have completely even heat along the edges. If you're using a 16x20 heat press, do wash tests if you actually print 16x20.

Our printer handles 15.5x19.5 but I keep our maximum to 15x19 just in case. GeoKnight DK20 user here and I test my temperature settings and there is some fall off at the edges. Enough to make me give up that extra 1" x 1" in the end.
