comment How to control the page size when exporting as a PDF?
I can set the "PageSize" and/or "PaperSize" of a notebook I'm creating with a command like Export[filename, CreateDocument[{...}, PrintingOptions -> {"PaperSize" -> {11*72, 17*72}, "PageSize" -> {11*72, 17*72}}]] and the Option Inspector does indicate that these options are set, but they don't affect the page size of the exported PDF.

comment How to control the page size when exporting as a PDF?
I'm programmatically creating ~100 notebooks and exporting them immediately with a command of the form Export[filename,CreateDocument[...],"PDF"], so I can't really go to the Page Setup dialog for each individual notebook. Under Windows, setting the paper size once for the parent notebook sets the page size of the PDF exports of the notebooks it spawns. It doesn't work that way for me under Mac OS X (v. 10.7.4; MMA v. 8.0.1.0).
