    Is it possible to make A4 the standard paper size when printing?

    It keeps using the paper size JIS..

    Ubuntu 11.10, freemind 0.9.0

    Have you tried:

    $ cat /etc/papersize

    When I write cat /etc/papersize in a terminal. It says a4.

    Freemind still wants to use JIS

    Thanks for answering. Did not see your reply before now..

    same problem here on Fedora (local: en_US), with papersize set to a4.
    Freemind prints only in Letter format

    I can manually change the paper size to A4 within freemind, but I have to do it every time I print…

    Very anoying..

    Anyone have a solution?

    I can print to any printer, select A4 or whatever paper size (not remembered, as posted by thomashedegaard) and print to a postscript file (.ps). If I convert the .ps to .pdf using the ps2pdf command, I get a small size PDF, in a A4 format (at last).

    Printing to CUPS-PDF (I am on Fedora Linux) is not good. CUPS-PDF will only print to Letter size (see my post above) when used with Freemind, and the PDF size is too big.

    Exporting to PDF isn't better. Letter format only.

    /etc/papersize/a4 has no effect on the print to cups-pdf & export to pdf outputs > letter size only.

    Are there any improvements regarding the exporting to pdf, and paper size options when printing to cups-pdf, in the next release Freemind v.1 (beta)?

    paper size is now stored in the preferences. This is implemented in the git-version and will be included in the next beta release.

    Is there by any chance a howto on how to install the beta version?
