e-pub to pdf:- page size conundrum

I made a number of attempts yesterday to make an epub to pdf conversion but was unable to overcome the following problem. The page-size of the pdf always came out as 3.50 x 4.60 inches. It didn't matter if I used calibre's default output settings or put in my own, the pdf came out as 3.50 x 4.60 inches.

I do apologise if this is a doh! moment but I find it very frustrating. What am I doing wrong?

You have to do two things:

1) Set the output profile to default
2) Choose the paper size in the pdf output settings
