Hi there!

I want to export an artboard in Illustrator sized 87,1x80,1mm to PDF, but whenever I check the page size of the PDF it says it's only 87x80mm in size. Does anyone know why this happens or how to solve this issue?

Yes, that is the correct size. Try placing the pdf in an Illustrator file and check the size in the Transform panel.

It works seemingly fine for other files where e.g. only one of the sizes has a ,1 (e.g. 87,1x112,6mm)

Try Print Production and look at the Set Page Boxes.

The Property info looks rounded.

Found the set page boxes option! It shows that the "cropped page size" is still 87,1x80,1mm, so how it's supposed to be. Is this the actual size then and the other is just a potentially rouded one or a display error? (Since it only happens if both width and height of the page end in ,1)

It does show the size it's supposed to be there, then I guess it's fine. Thank you for your help!
