    Can anyone tell me how to setup my printer to print to the edge of the A4 sheet instead of leaving a white border? None of my apps seems to offer a solution to this. I seem to remember being able to do it in Photoshop back when I used a PC.

    This is a printer feature. Software accomplishes the task in a number of ways. The most common is to print registration marks that act as guides for paper trimmers. To solve your problem, we need to know your specific model printer.

    OK, thanks. It hasn't helped as none of my applications show borderless printing options in the dialogue box. However, I've sent a customer support query.

    How borderless is it really if you have to tear off excess?

    You're right, it's not. :) Anyone can cut out a bit of paper. But some printers actually do print to the very edge of the paper. I don't know about this model. On my Canon, to print borderlessly I have to first select the paper size in the Page Setup dialogue. Typically the option will look like "U.S. Letter (borderless)". Then in the Print dialogue, the Canon printer driver adds an option to the drop-down list called Borderless Printing, or something like that, that lets me fine tune it.
