FileMaker PDF Page Size

FileMaker 13, OS X 10.10

I am saving a FileMaker record to a PDF via a FM script. The default printer settings for the computer are set to a default page size of A4 in the system preferences. In FileMaker the page setup default is set to A4. In my FM script there is a page setup step before making the PDF, and in it the page size is set to A4 at 90%. I use the "Save Records as PDF" script step. My PDF comes out at a page size that is about 10% larger than A4 (9.18 x 12.99 in).

What are the possible causes?

I can't think of why this might be happening, it should work the way you have it setup, but it might be useful to change some variable. What happens when you use 100% rather than 90%? Thats the one non-standard component I can see here...
Try 80% / 100% / 110%  and test the results.

Toggling percentage was the way to go, went with 100% which was the only one I could get to work, reducing percentage seemed to increase the page size which I found to be a strange bug.
