I notice that the first layer is inset a bit.

I'm having problems with the first layers printing some parts that have holes quite close to the perimeter. 

I think if I can make the first layer the same as the ones above, it will help.

Thanks, Ben

That is what is called "Elephant foot compensation" and the setting is in the Printer/Advanced page here (I included the tool tip in this screenshot):

Also described here (as well as many other places, see your favorite web search engine):
