Why can't I make borderless prints in Lightroom classic when I can do so in Photoshop?

This Spring I bought a new laptop (Dell) and upgraded from Lightroom 6 to Lightroom Classic. Previously, with the same printer (Canon multifunction TR8620) and my old laptop, I was able to print borderless prints from Lightroom 6 without problems. Yesterday, I tried making some prints of my Grandchildren using Lightroom Classic and the same printer. I was unable to make a borderless print in Lightroom. I was using 8 1/2 x 11 Canon photo paper. I had checked the "Zoom to fit" in Lightroom, on "page setup," which takes you to the menu for the Canon printer, I chose borderless print and selected maximum "extension." I was unable to set the margins in Lightroom at zero. It printed as shown on the screen, which produced a narrow white border around the print. I was able to print borderless by right clicking on the photo in Lightroom and selecting "edit in" and "open as a smart object in Photoshop." This opened the picture in Photoshop and I was able to print borderless with no problem in Photoshop. While this is a workaround, it seems unnecessary. What am I doing wrong in Lightroom?

LR can still do this. If you're having issues, it is how you've set up the Page Setup or other output parameters which are all stored in a template that you may need to recreate from scratch.
