How I can change a page setup for AdobePSGenericPostScriptPrinter.
 If you set-up a normal printer as your default printer and perform a print preview, you will see that this document has 3 pages.  If you then switch to have the RMBCPS ( AdobePSGenericPostScriptPrinter )  as your default printer and perform a print preview on this document, it will then have 4 pages.  Furthermore, this messes up the page numbers.

Let me guess: You are using a Microsoft package on Windows.

This is a "feature" of most (all?) Microsoft Office applications: They change their page layout based on the selected printer driver. Theer is nothing you can do about this besides selecting your target printer before you make any adjustments to the layout.
I have the Adobe PDF printer slelected as my default printer, and I only print PDF files. So if I want a printout of my Word document, I first convert it to PDF, and then print the PDF document (that is, if I want exact layouts).
