When I SAVE AS pdf a drawing with a custom page size, the PDF always looks like it's on A4 paper---even when the drawing is a fraction of that size. Is there a way to get a proper bounding box on the drawing?
I've found that the only thing that works is to save as EPS, then use eps2pdf to convert the drawing. It works, but it rasterizes the drawing in evince and looks like crap.
There has been a lot of traffic on the mailing list about PDF, from which I've gleaned that there are problems with PDF, but I wasn't able to nail down exactly what works today on what platforms, and how best to convert an Inkscape drawing to PDF today. (on Linux)
Thanks for any clarifications
I'm using inkscape-0.42.2, built from .tar.bz source on Ubuntu 5.10
