Lightroom: center image on page when printing

Add a simple "center image on page" option when printing a single image. I like to print an 11x14 image on a 16x20 page and simply want the image to automatically center on the page, which doesn't currently seem to be an option. As a designer who uses this feature often in apps such as InDesign and Illustrator, I'm surprised you don't have a similar option here.

Great idea, I do this all the time.

I can use this as well. I teach LR and I have to make up all sorts of reasons why this doesn't work easily. Not everyone is a math genius with the cells.

This is interesting.  I print (the metric equivalent of) 11x14 on 16x20 all the time.  The image is always centred by default.  For me this is one of LR's great strengths.

Here are my default settings:
       Layout Style: Single image
       Image Settings:  Rotate to fit
       Layout: Margins: all set to minimum
             Page Grid:  1 row, and 1 column
             Cell Size:  11 x 14

Are your settings the same?

Like Tim McMahon,  if all my margins are set to equal-minimum then the image is always centered. Any change to cell size sliders maintains the image central on the page.
