    I know size doesn't matter, but could you make up your mind?

    Jessica:

    If there's additional stuff on your art board somewhere, it will be included in the pdf. Try (with nothing selected) Object>Crop Area>Make, this should set crop marks at page size, then save and the pdf should look normal. Another way would be to draw a rectangle exactly to page size and with that still selected, do the crop thing.
