I have an Epson Stylus Photo 1400, that could print up to A3+, but the paper loading mechanism has been designed by idiots: only one roll placed at the extreme right margin. that means it's good in printing 4" x 6" pictures, but, when printing something bigger than A4, it will skew the sheet: no surprises here, with only one pinch roll placed at the extreme right margin, it's impossible to load a 17" wide sheet without let it skew.

So, since I did not buy this printer to print 4R pictures, I want to get rid of that, and buy an Epson R1900. Unfortunately, no store has this in stock, I have to order it online. Anyone has this printer and can tell me how the pinch roll is made?
