Lightroom: Scaling Graphical Identity Plates Precisely in Print

Scaling of Graphical Identity Plates in the Print Module....currently supports only whole numbers, e.g. 95%. For precise positioning of a graphical plate containing surrounding accent lines it would be helpful if we could have up to a 2-decimal fraction, e.g. 94.14%. The difference of 94-95%, 1%, is more than 1/10th of an inch on a 16x20 and this makes a significant difference in accuracy.

This is proving to be a big issue for me. On the Windows platform we have to rely on the graphical identity plate to produce multi-line text. I've yet to produce a print with a textual identity plate that I've been completely happy with as the scaling always produces some perceptible "softness" in the text. Personally, I'd like to have an option not to scale the graphic at all. If I produce the graphic with the appropriate dimensions in the first place, then scaling of 100% should be the original, unchanged image and not the width of the page size in Lightroom. It shouldn't be this hard.
