Oh god... I lost two or three hours to synchronice XNView and my HP Laserjet 2100 for some critical exact prints

- Problem 1: The Printer sends some wrong Paperdata to XNView, so the Output is some percent to small. XNView does not allow to oversize the Picture.
- Workaround: Scale 0.9 in XNView and Stretch 111% in Printer Driver
- Suggestion: "[x] Allow Oversize" in "Page Layout"

- Problem 2: The Printer sets the Picture to much on the right
- Workaround: Use manual tray and set the paper more on the right
- Suggestion: Allow Margins <0

---More Infos about the Printer Driver---
-If I send an image from Photoshop with Margins 0/0 the Printer Driver wont set the Picture to the top left but where the printable area begins (about 0.4mm to left and down). Workaround in Photoshop: Margins <0

-The Printer Driver does not send Papersize A4 to XNView but the printable area (or perhaps XNView does not reads the Papersize but the printable Area). So there is no possibility for an exact size since Scale 1/1 and also DPI will shrink the Image to the printable area. 2nd: TopLeft of the Picture is same as in photoshop where the printable area begins.

And once again a very simple Workaround: Use XNView 1.21 :)
