To further amplify on this comment, use the traveller and mainsheet to get the boom on centerline and the top batten (if a partial and not full) on centerline. This usually requires the traveller to be set to windward. Overtrimming the mainsheet will pull the leech to far to windward and you loose drive from the main.
