I use a Nikon D3. The lens are FX format which make pictures wider. The problem is that, when going to print out an Album/Photo Book (Lightroom 4) the images are cut off due to such format.
Therefore my request if it is possible, would be for you to provide on Lightroom 4 the option of a printed book that let photos taken with FX Format to fill a full page of a book without cutting any part of the image.
As far as I am concerned, this is a very popular and new format for pro cameras.

Thank you for your attention,

I don't think I understand. There is nothing that says a full-frame, 100% pixel sized image from any camera will necessarily fit on a printed page.

It is up to you to scale and crop such that it fits both your artistic sensibilities and your page or frame size.

Right click the photo in the book and untick Zoom Photo to Fill Cell.

An easy way to do this for all photos is to go to Book's grid view, Edit > Select all Photo Cells, then do the above.

To set this as the default, go to Book > Book Preferences and select Zoom to Fit in the default zoom.
