I'm using Windows' version of GhostScript to print PDF files.
The problem is it always tried to print page as Letter format what my printer does not support.
I've tried -sPAPERSIZE#a4 option but didnt help...

Can you advice how to force GS to scale page to A4 ?

Options I'm setting:

-dPrinted -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -dNOSAFER -q -sPAPERSIZE#a4 -sDEVICE=ljet4

Strange but changing to sPAPERSIZE=a4 helped (even in manual is written that in windows version all '=' chars shall be replaced by '#')
