I have Office Professional 2013 and Adobe Acrobat Pro X on MS Windows 7 x64.
I set my book manuscript up for 5.5 x 8.5" paper size. I sent it to my translator, and it came back 8.5" x 11" .
In Word 2013, I go to Page Layout > Size > Paper, and it says, "Custom Size, 5.5" Wide, 8.5" tall."
Then I go to Print > Adobe PDF, and it says, "Custom Page Size, 5.5" x 8.5" (looks good).
But when I print, the .pdf is on 8.5 x 11" virtual paper.
File > Properties > Page Size says 8.5 x 11.00

How can I get it to give me a 5.5 x 8.5" output? Thanks.

Here's how to fix that:

(1) In the Word 2013 print dialog, click Printer Properties under Adobe PDF.

(2) In the Adobe PDF Settings, the Adobe PDF Page Size will probably say something besides 5.5x8.5.

(3) Click the Add button, give it a Page Name of 5.5x8.5, and set the Width to 5.5 and the Height to 8.5.

(4) Click the Add/Modify button.

(5) Click the Adobe PDF Page Size drop-down and select the newly-added 5.5x8.5.

(6) Return to the print dialog and print it.

That should do it! Regards, Joe
