I'm having some troubles getting my patterns printed to pdf in the right paper size (A4 instead of US letter size). I'm got PM Knits v6 installed. I've tried using Microsoft PDF writer as well as Cute PDF writer. My default settings in Windows for both of those apps are on A4. When I print the pattern summary or guide sheet to pdf, my version uses the correct default settings and I get the correct A4 size. However, when I try to print my patterns, my default changes to US letter size. I can change this, but my software doesn't seem to save this setting. It keeps switching back to letter size. When I go on and print to PDF, my page dimensions are neither A4 nor US letter size, but some weird 28,42 cm x 18,26 cm. Can somebody help me out with this?

The PDF writer determines the size. The program does not have printer options.

I understand that, but is there anything you can recommend I do? As advised in the printing guide, I downloaded Cute PDF Writer. Something must be wrong, but I can't figure out by myself what it is.

I tested Cute PDF and it defaults to 8.5 by 11. I suspect because it is a US program. I have tried and am not able to set a different default.

Hi Inny
Did you find a pdf-program, that allows A4 as default?
Asking, because I am looking for a pdf-program to use and would prefer A4 as default.
Best regards
Pia
