Data Driven Pgs Page and Print Setup Inconsistency

Ive searched for similar issues on the forum but didnt find anything.  My colleague created a Data Driven Pages project where the Printer Setup is "Adobe PDF," and the page size is set to Arch E.  When I open this, my page size is set to "Slide 7.5 X 10."  The map appears at this size, and of course the legend and titles are skewed.

I went into my Adobe default settings, and set them to Arch E to force anything to be at that size, to no avail.  I believe i did this in the windows printer setup on the control panel.  Is there anything I can do in Arcmap short of resizing the project.  Or is this a bug or another issue I am entirely missing?

Ok, we just unchecked the "Use Printer Paper Settings" on the Page and Print Setup.  Problem solved, though I'd like to know why it defaulted to the "slide" setting when I open the file.
