Adjusting paper size for Mac "print to pdf" function"

Mac "print to pdf" function is defaulting to US Letter output, despite A4-formatted documents that print fine as A4 on a physical printer.

Is there a manual adjustment I can make?
Ideally I want this to be automatic rather than manual -- I want the "print to pdf" function to correctly auto-sense page size and make the PDF output match that page size, because I have many files of both kinds (both USL and A4). But I can settle for manual adjustment.
The computer is registered in the U.S., using all U.S. defaults. Based on a tip I found (posted years ago), I tried changing global system format (System Preferences > Languages & Text > Formats > Measurement Units) from "US" to "metric"; no luck there.
There must be a way to fix this without installing third-party PDF creation software....
