10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: ths on Nov 26, '03 11:51:07AM

This is a really great hint! Unfortunately, in my case, the PDF files will always be US letter size instead of the papersize I set in the document, like A5 or A4. It seems that US letter size is hardcoded into pstopdf. I've been toying around with settings and man pages, but wasn't very succesful. So, does anybody know how to get around this 'feature'? Thanks in advance :-)

10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: ths on May 31, '04 02:40:01PM

Oh, well, I'm answering my own question: when I changed the printer driver from "Generic" to something different e.g. "Apple Color LaserWriter 12/600 PS v2014.108" I was at least able to print to A4 instead of US letter format. Any other paper formats are not supported, apparently. But better than nothing, eh?
