Professional Print & Layout popup about paper with wide margins

Printing problem with Canon Professional Print & Layout

Camera :Sony Nex-7

Lens: Sony E 18-200

Printer: Canon Pixma Pro 200

Software: DXO PhotoLab 5, Silver Efex Pro 3, Nik Sharpener Pro 3, (Output Sharpener), Canon Professional Print & Layout

Paper: Canon A3 Matte

The problem. When clicking PRINT in CPP&L, I get a popup saying “The selected paper size does not have wide margins….......Printing with a paper size that has wide margins is recommended.”
What does this mean?

The Pro 200 has a maximum printing size of 3 mm. from the top edge and 5 mm. from the bottom edge, making a maximum printable length on A3 paper of 412 mm. (A3 is 420 mm).

I set the resize in PhotoLab at 41 cm.(410 mm.), so I can’t see any reason for the popup.

The input and output image sizes I have made the same at 273.35 x 410 mm. (correct aspect ratio for this camera) In CPP&L, so the image should fit on A3 paper

Am I missing something ?

If you are using a fine art matte paper there are wider imposed margins to avoid head strikes at the leading and trailing edge of the paper. Which exact paper are you using?
