No

the PDFDefaultPageSize config var is not in the docs. us dumb americans like it to be 'letter' instead of the default of 'A4'. it even seems like putting it into the config.sample.inc.php file would be nice.

    Anyone else with thoughts on including this in the sample configuration? On one hand, we want it to be a simple and easy to read file to get people up and running, on the other hand this is an important option when creating a PDF.

    I'm not sure that this one should be added to config.sample.inc.php (and there are other ones like QueryHistoryMax that shouldn't be there IMO).

    Maybe the real problem is that this setting is not in the user prefs (More settings)? At least I couldn't find it.

    I agree with everything you said. Do you think this setting belongs on the Export tab of user preferences?
