You can define a new style sheet (.isy file) with just 3 lines in it. it
should look just like the "letterpaper" style given near the top of this
...except that the dimensions will be appropriate for A4 paper, with the
width (1st number) larger than the height. Give it a name (both the
filename and the ipestyle name) like "a4portrait" instead of "letterpaper".
Then load that file as a style sheet for your document using Edit --> Style
Sheets --> Add. Then Edit --> Update Style Sheets to make it take effect.
Hope that works for you!
