I'm using the ACM "Tighter Alternate style" to write a document. The submission instructions state that I have to create a PDF in US letter format but unfortunately, my PDF is A4. How can I change this to US letter?

I have tried the geometry package (\usepackage[letterpaper]{geometry}), but this produces 6 instead of 4 pages and I can read everywhere, that there are only slight differences between both sizes... Additionally, I looked into the config.ps as described here, but proposed lines to change exist both in my config.ps.

  • Please provide a minimum working example that demonstrates the problem. – user10274 Jun 18 '14 at 12:32

It is an officially (I asked ACM support) accepted way to do this

\pdfpagewidth=8.5in
\pdfpageheight=11in
  • Thank you very much! They should put this on the ACM site; it's missing this critical piece of information for TeX authors. – tomocafe Dec 16 '14 at 18:15
