Publishing on Foundry - What paper size?
« on: May 14, 2021, 01:49:14 pm »
What paper size is preferred on the Foundry when creating PDF's? This is the A4 vs Letter argument. Being US-based, I'm of course used to Letter. But, if I put something on the Foundry, which should I go with since those downloading it may be from various places in the world? Or is it a moot point since a PDF reader will convert it for your printer anyway if you decide to print it out?

I tried to see if there was a standard for the Foundry, but didn't find anything.

I think they are nearly all titles US letter sized much to the lament of the rest of the world. This matches what the books themselves are published in.

There's nothing really stopping anyone from doing Graphic Novel size or A5 or sizes similar to Savage Worlds or Index Card RPG. Unless there's some small written rule that says it must be US Letter or A4 sized.

Check out these resources. Maybe the page size would be impacted by the intended device size you're wanting to be viewed on.
