Scale specified pdf pages using command line

Sometimes you need to scale specified pdf pages to certain size, for instance, scaling specified pages 1, 4-7, 16’s widths to 130% of primary page width, and page heights to 120% of primary page height. By rule, you would scale them one by one, why not scale them only one time, it is convenient? The VeryPDF.com offers you a tool, with which you can scale specified pdf pages only one time; it is Advanced PDF Tools Command Line.

Step 1 open the following link to download Advanced PDF Tools
