Scan always switches to Letter format

When I want to scan a document, the default setting is US Letter. I change to A4 and save changes. However, next time, the settings is Letter again.

Even when I scan several pages in sequence, PDFChanges switches back to Letter format.

What can I do to _permanently_ set A4 format for scanning?

With the PDFXChange Viewer, I could switch to full screen view with a simple function key stroke.
In the Editor, I did not find such functionality yet.
Did I miss something, or is this still to be done?

Btw, the 307 release was a great step forward (IMHO). I like it.
