How to change PDF file's paper size?

I have PDFs that are too big. The page size is 3 feet by 2 feet.

I want them to change to PDFs that are 8.5 x 11.

What are the command line switches to make this happen? resize height and height and the width ones are not working.

Thank you,
Customer

pdftools.exe -i C:\in.pdf -o C:\out.pdf -x "0 0 0 842" -j "0 842 true" //urx (Width) will be calculated automatically

"-x" parameter will set paper width and height for every page in your PDF file, you can set either width or height to 0, the another parameter will be calculated automatically.

"-j" parameter will scale paper content automatically, you can set either ScaleX or ScaleY to 0, the another parameter will be calculated automatically.

The unit of -x and -j is Point, you need convert from inch to point unit, for example,

8.5inch = 8.5x72 = 612pt
11inch = 11x72 = 792pt
