Not sure if I have asked this before.
I use Lightroom 2.4 and print from that on an HP B9180.
I can print borderless on most sizes, A4, A3 6x4 Etc. But not on 'custom' sizes.
Anyone know how I can do that? Even using different software to print from?
I want to print on half an A3+, which is 24x33cm but LR/printer will not let me print to the edge, it gives me a margin of .25in on top and side and .56in on bottom which is wasting my paper.
I cannot print to this size using the HP software, it has pre determined sizes unlike LR where you can specify a size.
It is very frustrating.

Don't know if this is a red herring, and I know nothing about HP printers, but Epson won't let you print borderless on some paper types, eg, plain paper.
The other thing to try is Qimage, but since it uses as its base the print driver, I suspect that things won't change.

I am using the same paper type, HP's own for the different sizes.
I may try Qimage, cheers.

Have you tried one of the Lightroom forums (fora?) ?

Yep. So far, no result.
Sorry, I haven't. I did ask on other forums, getting confused, my age.
I will now ask on the forums you recomend.
