I am using geometry with memoir (PDFLaTeX) to make a 48"x36" poster. However, using geometry at that setting results in a 8.5" x 11" document. What's wrong, and how to I create the size?

memoir provides its own geometry-setting mechanism:

\documentclass{memoir}% http://ctan.org/pkg/memoir
\setstocksize{36in}{48in}% Set paper size
\settrimmedsize{\stockheight}{\stockwidth}{*}% Equivalent trimmed size

Read section 2.3 THE PAGE from the memoir documentation (p 8 onward).


I have no problem with the following MWE:


I got a 48" x 36" document using pdflatex.
