Actual print size different from Print module dimensions
« on: June 02, 2012, 12:58:41 PM »

So, I just made a print that, according to the LR 4.1 Print module is 20.394 x 15.296 inches. Even the "Cell Size" indicates a width of 20.39 inches.

When I measure the printed area it is 20.8 x 15.6 inches.
  • Printer: Epson R3880;
  • Paper: Moab Entrada (although the paper doesn't matter);
  • Page Set-up: US C 17 x22 (Sheet Feed Borderless (Retain Size))
Shouldn't "retain size" mean greater precision in the actual size of the print?

This is not a huge problem as the print gets matted anyway, but I'm curious as to the discrepancy in size.
