How to convert PCL file to PDF file with A3 paper by pcl5c.exe application?

Question:

The PDF file is created as a letter size document even though in the VeryPDF Converter settings has it set as legal. Does that happen because of something in the original PCL file not being set correctly or is it because your software needs an adjustment?

Answer:

We suggest you may choose a bigger paper size to render PCL file to PDF file, such as A3 paper. If you are using pcltools.exe, please run following command line,

"C:\Program Files\VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.6\pcltool.exe" -pclcmd "\"-J@PJL SET PAPER=A3\"" -rotate 90 -noempty E:\MyDocument\Downlo
ads\PCLTESTl3012.pcl E:\MyDocument\Downloads\PCLTESTl3012.pcl.pdf

If you are using pcl5c.exe, please add “-paper 6” parameter to choose A3 paper,

pcl5c.exe -paper 6 E:\MyDocument\Downloads\PCLTESTl3012(3).pcl E:\MyDocument\Downloads\PCLTESTl3012(3).pcl.pdf

"-paper 6" will select A3 paper, it will render more contents from PCL page to PDF page.
