How to use Advanced PDF Tools Command Line to set page size to A3, A4???

Hi

In your help file of the command line version you say that it is possible to (re)size a pdf to A4 or A3. But there is not even a hint inside the manual how to do that.

So please tell me how you do that.

Thanks in advance.

11inch = 11x72 = 792pt
