Converting To PDF - Text Gets Blown Up

I'm trying to convert from epub / mobi formats into pdf.

Whenever I do this using Calibre, the text in my PDF output gets blown up to font size 50+. This means I get roughly 10 words every A4 page which makes the book unreadable.

To see my problem for yourself please watch this super short 70 second video - http://screencast.com/t/IsGTcCal67

This is not an isolated incident. It happens with all my epub / mobi books when I try to convert them to PDF.

I've have successfully removed the DRM from these books so this shouldn't be the issue.

What am I doing wrong?

Can someone help with this? Be very grateful...

Look under PDF Output in the conversion dialog, set the override paper size option and choose the paper size as a4 or letter.
