Margin problems with 785Ex and Photoshop
I never seem to get a print either borderless or centered on the page printing with this printer. I have the XP drivers and I use adobe Photoshop. I go to some trouble to make sure the right paper is selected in all the menus (there are are two sets one set Photoshop and one set Epson). I have tried checking off all the places where it says either maximize to fit media or center (and all combinations of both and noen of the above). Then I tried adjusting the margins with plus and minus adjustments (sometimes this has ana effect sometimes not). Any help appreciated.

...is supported only for certain paper types, including 4x6, 8x10, 11x14 and on roll paper. The reason for this is that the printer cannot grip the paper and print reliably in the last half-inch or so of the feed. This is not a problem for roll paper, which will be trimmed later. All the special papers have detachable perforated extensions that allow printing right up to and beyond the last-fed edge of the paper. Printing flush with the first-fed edge is not a problem, as the paper feed is behind that edge as it goes in.
The special papers are very expensive per page, so it is usually more cost-effective to print on roll paper or print on larger stock and trim flush to the image with a paper cutter. (For example, you could print 8.5x10 prints on a letter-size sheet and trim off the trailing 1" with a trimmer; or, you could print two 8x12" images side-by-side on a single sheet of super B--13x19"--paper.)

I am not necessarily interested in hborderless (although I using paper - perforation less that Epson says works with the 785). What I want is a centered print. It is always off to one side or another and no setting that I can manipulate centers the picture. Any ideas on settings. Between the Epson driver and the Adobe print screens there are an awful lot of options. Thanks.
