Hi @x0xgingarx0x You can add a custom page size. If you are on Windows:

  • Close Acrobat
  • In Settings, go to Devices and Printers
  • Right click the Adobe PDF printer
  • Choose Printing preferences
  • On the Adobe PDF Settings tab choose click on "Add" to create a new one and apply.
  • A5 in inches is 5.8 x 8.3.

I'm having the same problem on Windows 11, the A5 paper size is missing from the "Adobe PDF" printer. 

 

The above instructions do not work either, on clicking "add" and entering the dimensions for A5, a popup error window says the A5 system paper size cannot be modified, even though it doesn't exist... 

 

Using Microsoft's PDF printer driver works perfectly, so unclear why this problem exists with Adobe specifically...

That does not work. When I attempt to add A5, I get a warning pop-up that says "Not allowed to modify system or printer defined paper size (A5). Only user defined paper size can be modified or deleted." My only option was to name it something else, so I named it "A5-new". It's bizarre that A5 is not listed in Adobe PDF page sizes.
