    Preview printing: wrong paper size

    My Preview's paper size keeps reverting to A4, even though my printer's paper size is set to US Letter.

    I've tried saving a new 'preset' in Preview, but that doesn't help as though it doesn't include paper size.

    Any suggestions?

    OS X 10.5.5 but I'm pretty sure this goes back to earlier Leopard versions.

    LOL...been troubleshooting this for ages, and as soon as I post a question I figure it out. Go figure.

    Turns out something on the Windows PDF writer is changing the doc's papersize to A4. And Windows Adobe Reader adjusts it back so it prints correctly, but Preview goes with the stated setting. Hopefully changing the default paper size in the PDF writer will fix everything.
