I want to use Acrobat Pro DC on Win 10 to create a new blank PDF, with the page size defaulting to A4.
If I go: Tools/Create PDF/Blank Page/Create, it is always US Letter size.
Is there a settings file I can change to get this to be A4 (or something else?).
I suspect it will be a .joboptions file - if so, how do I create it, what should I call it, and which folder should I put it in?
Thanks in advance,
Job options not involved. If the option resets each time you are probably stuck. Consider having a stock PDF with a blank a4 page: you can insert the PDF.

It can be done with a script, but you can also simply convert a blank Word document with the desired page size to a PDF and then use it as a template.
Did you ever find a solution for this, so it opens new PDFs in A4 without using templates or having to first use a Word document? I'm having the same issue even though I've changed everything I can possibly find to be changed to A4 size. My online search for answers is not going well at all.
You can't change it.
