PS in Letter / PDF in A4 !!!

Postby blakeredfield » Fri Apr 03, 2009 4:37 am

Hi guys,

I'm running TexnicCenter and Adobe Reader (latest versions) and I just realized something very annoying is happening with my files. I want my output to be in letter page size. When I compile ANYTHING to .dvi or .ps, they come out correctly, but when I compile my final version to .ps => .pdf the document is in A4 paper size.

So annoying. I have a PDF printer driver, so I can get a letter paper size pdf file from the ps file that way, but I want to because the quality sucks... I dont understand why this is happening. Anything come to mind?

Thank you.

Figured this one out myself:

In TexnicCenter, under Build > Define Output Profiles, I selected the dvi => PS => PDF profile and then in the Postprocessor Tab, I clicked on the Ghostscript (ps2pdf) entry below. There is an Arguments line below that says:

-sPAPERSIZE=a4

The obvious choice was to change it to:

-sPAPERSIZE=letter

which worked. And now I'm done with my dissertation. Thanks for all the help along the way guys!
