The default class "article" in the variable org-export-latex-classes (which
Emacs can't find anymore -- I have just filed a report) is

    \documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}

I suggest dropping the "a4paper" option and letting the local TeX customization
determine the default papersize.

Best,

This is a localization, and as such should not be hard-wired

I would agree that this should not be hard-wired. I have to manually
remove "a4paper" to work with American printers.

Best,
Matt

That default just requires some customization. I already use my own
header/footer code, so I've nixed it.

It would make better sense to let the export header specify the
papersize though with the default header / footer.

Thanks.

I also have to manually remove the a4 option.  It's not hard to do, but I
cannot directly export to pdf because of this.

I would surely like to see how you've done this.  Speculating, perhaps I
could go through the latex export code and find out.  It might be
interesting to have two or more kinds of header.  I've worked out a cheesy
memo export using remember templates.

As an alternative, it would be interesting to drop into a buffer in (auctex)
LaTeX mode with the content, as the current alternatives leave some further
work to do.

I have removed the a4paper from the default classes.

Thanks.
