I see this complaint about "placement on a page" with most apps until we get into DTP such as PageMaker and its kin.
To me this is not about printer controller software but the choices made with the software used.
Since being forced to lose XP and be subjected to Win10, I've been having fits with digital image editors. Does anyone make software designed specifically to control the printer? I've been through 8 digital image editors only to find that all of them fight with the controls on my Epson 3880 to the point that every print is unpredictable and none of the software controllers built into them allow for complete control over the placement of the image on the paper. They all seem to think they are more capable of determining where you want the image on the paper than you are. Additionally, there is usually an overlap wherein the Digital image software and the 3880 control panel both have checkoffs or entry boxes to determine such things as "fit to page" or "paper size, image size, horizontal or vertical format" etc. and there is no telling which one will take control of the print. This is particularly frustrating given the cost of fine art printing papers, and given that they are sometimes custom cut for such commodities as cards or custom art prints. HELP!!!
