It is very important to cut your leading edge and right side at right angles to each other, if the leading edge is not 'sensed' as straight or the right edge is skewed your print will be skewed. No loss yet, leave a safety margin permitting you to trim the borders and recover.

Feeding the printmaterial at a perfect straight angle is indeed most important.

With canvas front feed is required. In the front feeder the first edge of the material is sensed by the printer. If the paper canvas is feeded at a different angle than 90 ' the paper sensors get a different idea of print media dimension. The media dimension sensor overrules paper size set in software. Thus s if paper is not feeded at straight angle the output image will be cropped.

Even with this knowledge it is still darn difficult to get an uncropped print from the frontfeeder.
