I have just written a book using Word 2019, saved as a PDF by using the Adobe Printer Driver

The publisher has come back to me with this statement:

With regards to your artwork, the text pages you have supplied need to be set to A4 page size (297mm x 210mm), your artwork is set to 279.4mm x 215.9mm

 

I have no idea what they mean, how can the width of my text be wider than the page ?
It prints out perfect with a 1cm margin all around

Create a PDF of 2 pages of your book and post that PDF file here. You may also extract those pages from the original PDF file.

You just have to do what it tells you: put the pages of your document in A4 format and export it to PDF.
