If I hear the description "a bit smaller", I immediately think: could
it be that your PDF viewer is set to Fit Page or something like that?
PDF viewers do the most unexpected things when set to Fit Page. You
really have to set the PDF viewer to "Page Scaling: None" or its
closest equivalent.

If that's not it, then I don't have a clue. You do not describe the
problem in sufficient detail to do anything but guessing.

With kind regards,
