epub to pdf: custom paper size not working

I've been trying to covert from epub to pdf, using the custom paper size but it's not working.

The steps that I did:

1. Set OUTPUT FORMAT: PDF
2. Page Setup: Output Profile > Default Output Profile
3. PDF Output: Custom size: 4.19x6.75

This is the screenshot of the setting:


After clicking okay, when I checked the converted file, it assumes the LETTER size. I've tried this several times. Did I do something wrong with the steps?

What's OS X?

Edit:

I googled OS X and it's for Mac, right? I'm using Windows 7.

If I recall correctly, the custom size numbers need to be integers not fractions. A limitation I will remove for the next calibre release.

Oh...okay. At least you get to look at it and remove the limitations. Thanks very much for your replies!
