Note: You can first check the actual size of your document by choosing "File > Properties."
Step 2 : Paper Size!
Note: In this step, you are telling the printer the dimensions of your paper. You will need to adjust your file in the software so it can fit the paper, either by manually entering dimensions that reflect your desired size, or by automatically by scaling to fit paper.
