I have an SVG document in format A6 created in Inkscape. I want to create a PDF output and use CutePDF for this. The output has the correct size (a fourth of an A4), put is put onto an A4. In other words I have an A4 PDF page with the upper left corner filled with the correct content.

I have seen this: how to define custom print sizes

But this is not my problem.

This is what I do: in Inkscape File->Print. I choose CutePDF then Preferences->Advanced->Paper Size to A6.

I tried the same with PDFill PDF Writer, with the same result.

Any idea how to output to an A6 pdf paper size?

One alternative would be to scale your original A6 svg to A4, print as PDF, and then rescale the A4 pdf file to A6.

Thanks for the suggestion. I wouldn't know how to go with font sizes though. If I want 12 pt, would I only have to double to 24? See also my own solution (which I cannot set as the correct answer before 8 hours). – Gauthier Feb 23 '10 at 11:57

After testing with another program (word), I realised the problem was in inkscape, not in the pdf printer.

This was a known and old bug, solved recently in version 0.47 of inkscape:

No problem with the new version, and the page size is automatically filled in!
