There is a problem with the placement of objects when printing with odd page sizes. Specifically, when printing a page that is half US letter (8.5" tall by 5.5" wide) to the same paper size the center of the page is pushed to the left edge of the paper. This happens at the postscript level meaning that if printed to file and then converted to PDF with ghostscript the problem is apparent.

Expected behavior: when printing to file with custom page size the page set should have the specified dimensions with properly placed objects. If it is sent to the printer as such the printer should deal with it as it can.

This is a problem because there is currently no way to produce a PDF of off-sized paper sizes. The built-in PDF export works, but does not support bitmap fills, arrow heads, gradients, embedded fonts, etc.

Note, this was actually tested with
