To change your Adobe PDF printer default page size:

Close Adobe Acrobat

- In Windows go to your 'Devices and Printers'
- Right click the 'Adobe PDF' printer
- Choose 'Printing preferences'
- On the 'Adobe PDF Settings' tab choose your custom 'Adobe PDF Page Size' or select one from the list. If it isn't there you can click on 'Add' to create a new one.
- Click 'Apply'

Open Adobe Acrobat and when you choose Print just check your default page size is different just above the preview.

With your PDF open in Adobe Acrobat hit the Print button. This opens the Print Dialogue where the options I was referring to can be found.

I am printing to PDF from a word document. the dialogue you refer to does not appear unless I am re-printing an existing PDF file.

II'll need a bit more information as I wasn't aware you were using Word, I presumed you were using Acrobat only.

- What is the paper size of your Word document? Is it 8.5 x 11 by any chance?
- Which method are you using to create the PDF i.e. Print to PDF, Save As Adobe PDF, Save As PDF XPS, or Create PDF from the Acrobat Tab?
