Click Add to define or modify additional standard page sizes using page dimensions you specify.
Select Portrait or Landscape.
This setting influences character spacing, line breaks, and image quality. Usually, higher resolution produces a more accurate layout but a larger file size.
Select a resolution: Screen (72 dpi), Low (150 dpi), Medium (300 dpi), High (600 dpi), 1200 or 2400 dpi (dots per inch).
Low resolution is ideal for screen viewing. However, if you require high-quality hard copy, or accurate control of character position, choose a resolution of at least 600 dpi.
Specify whether to reduce or enlarge a document, and by what percentage, between 1 and 1000 percent.
Enter a value less than 100 percent to reduce the size of the text and images on the page; enter a value greater than 100 percent to enlarge them.

Select this option to view the PDF file. By default it is selected.
