For what it’s worth, if you didn’t already know, 11.69x8.27 inches is

Have you checked your printer settings to see if it defaults to A4
paper? Maybe PDF:Writer is picking up its settings from a printer,
for some reason…
No, it won’t be doing that. PDF::Writer is written entirely in Ruby.
My suspicion is that there’s something in Matt’s code which is
creating the document with an A4 size, e.g.:
pdf = PDF::Writer.new(:paper => “A4”)
PDF::Writer creates its pages from the exact number of points (about
1/72 of an inch) and the named paper sizes are merely for convenience.
If PDF::Writer is not given a paper size as above, it will always
asssume LETTER (U.S. Letter, 8.5" x 11").
