Yes, I can't get it centered in the "long" dimension when center is checked. It is centered in the short dimension; e.g. the 8.5-inch dimension.

Apparently I am not unique in this matter.

No, you're not the only one. I don't know about other printers, but it's apparently "the rule" with Canon printers. I had so much trouble getting my greeting cards centered I wrote to Red River about it and Drew had this to say: The leading and trailing edge on Canon printers is always slightly different. In our experience the difference is usually about 1/8”, maybe a little more. He then went on to suggest how to get it as close as possible. (Which was simply to "off-center" the photo and text of the card.)
