MG7520 Alignment issue


Today I bought my first Canon print, the pixma MG7520. Took it out for a spin, I printed various 4x6 cards for which will be the primary purpose of the printer. Right off, its NOT a good start. No matter what options I choose, the aligment is

1.) Locked to the top left corner, expanding to the bottom right. Only when it was "Scaled" is it locked to bottom-left, Expaning to top-right. I would Love to know how to ailign to center.

2.) Printing croocked. The top-left edge of the image is consistantly closer to the top-left edge of the paper than the top-right. Just over a 16th of an imch. The paper measures just short of perfection, so its not the paper.


Beyond alignment issues, adjustments to margins doesn't work. When it says "Specify Margins" with a value of 0.0-1.2, Im under the impression 0.0 is suposed to be borderless and 1.2 is a thick border/margin. But when I choose 0.1 There is a very large margin. How do I get rid of it?


Ultimately, Im needing a 5.75" x 3.75" image on a 4x6 card.
