  • create a new print layout
  • at the layout-window, go to the first menu ("Anordnung" on my localized version, translates to arrangement maybe)
  • go there to "Page Setup"
  • size is now A4, change that to something else
    -> no effect, size stays at A4
  • change from landscape to portrait
    -> no effect, stays at landscape
  • right-click (context menu) over the page
  • use "page properties"
  • change size or page orientation
    -> everything works as expected

I think the "Page setup" is for direct print paper size.

I think the "Page Setup" does not work at all (Windows 10). Page properties shows the correct settings!
Right know printing A3 landscape is not possible at all. You always get A4 portrait.
The only workaround I found is to export the Layout as pdf.

Same problem when running QGIS 3.0.2 under Mac OS X 10.12.6.
Using Ctrl-click (right-click) on page seems to be only way to access page properties.

P.S. "Layout" needs to be added to New Issue's list of Categories.
