I have defined how I want to cut my paper and I was planning on using the veelo chapter style. However it doesn't pick up the trimmed paper size correctly. See this example:







    \chapter{My first chapter}
    Notice how the veelo setting has not picked up the right paper size.

I have tried calling \checkandfixthelayout before \chapterstyle{veelo} also but that did not make any difference. What am I doing wrong?
