"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

in your print properties, click the Page Setup button, and see if you can select the paper size you want from there?

Page Setup
in addition, you may try to find something like: custom scale or shrink oversized pages and configure there accordingly?

I participated in a similar question a while ago and here's the solution:

Follow the same process, but instead of defining a custom 5.5x8.5 size, define a custom 8x13 size. You don't have to access the Adobe PDF printer from Word — you can access it from Acrobat or even via Control Panel:

Devices and Printers
Right-click Adobe PDF
Printing preferences
Adobe PDF Settings

You'll see this:

Adobe PDF Settings
Click the Add button and follow the steps in the other question (adding, of course, an 8x13 size). Regards, Joe

on my page set up.. only the "Auto Select" was appearing instead of "Auto tray select" and i can't change it to 8 x 13.

Rather than Page Setup, try my instructions above — doing it via Printer Preferences.
