I have a file, small at the moment but will enlarge to 500+ pages, that is set to a page size of 150mm wide by 230mm high. When I export this file to a pdf, it prints out as an A4 size? How can I get the page size to remain at 150 x 230?
Thanks for any help!
my guess is the PDF has the right page size, but your print settings are set to scale the print.
For the exact page size open the PDF in Acrobat Pro DC, go to category Print Production > Set Page Boxes and look after TrimBox size. If you want see units in "Millimeters", first visit Acrobat's Preferences > Units & Guides and change Page & Riler Units to "Millimeters".

Thanks Uwe, will try that in the morning!
My thanks, mate!
That worked, thanks but does this mean I have to keep subscribing to Adobe for Acrobat?
Please excuse my levels of ignorance!
Adobe Reader will fit for printing to 100% as well.
But yes, if you are working for print related workflows, a document with 500+ pages, it is mandatory to check and preflight exported PDFs in Acrobat Pro before sending them to any printing company.
