No positioning options in Page Handling when printing!!!

Bug Description

Open a document,
print it
select a physical printer
select a paper size that doesn't match the document size, e.g. paper size smaller than document

Expected: there should be options to set how to POSITION the printed document relative to the paper media: centering, aligning to top-left, top-right, etc, and arbitrary positioning.

Observed: there's nothing of that.
In the Page Setup tab there is a "scale" setting expressed as a percentage.
In the Page Handling tab there's another "Page scaling" setting which allows you to choose between None, Fit to printable area, or Shrink to printable area. By the way, it is not clear how this setting would interact with the Scale setting in the other tab.

But there's no X and Y or Top and Left settings, so if the document is smaller than the paper size, you can't choose where to print it, and if it is bigger, you can't choose which portion of it to print.

How can it lack such a basic vital setting?
