I use TeXnicCenter on Windows with the "LaTeX => PS => PDF" output profile and the margins are wrong. What should I do?

The following information is from Johannes Cilliers.

TeXnicCenter's "LaTeX => PS => PDF" output profile might be set to produce A4 size (210 x 297 mm ≈ 8.27 x 11.69 in) output. Check that it is set to produce letter size (8.5 x 11 in) output.

To check or change it do "Build" menu => "Define Output Profiles.." => highlight "LaTeX => PS => "PDF" from "Profiles" menu and select the "Postprocessor" tab => highlight "Ghostscript (ps2pdf)". In the "Arguments" box change "-sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dSAFER.." to "-sPAPERSIZE=letter -dSAFER..."
