rolled plate not flattening accurately

I work with a lot of heavy (3/8"-1"thick) rolled plates. I use sheetmetal so I can get a flat pattern. However, I believe I'm running into problems because I can only create a bend using one edge of the plate. This is causing the plates to be a tiny bit longer than they should be.

I would like to bend them about the bending axis (middle of the plate). I think this would give me a much more accurate flat pattern. Can this be done?
