How to set the paper size by PDFPrint Command Line application?

PDFPrint - I have tried the newest version 3.1 and the -paper setting does not work. I specify 11x17 and that does not work. I also want to try the SDK version of PDFPrint but cannot get that to work.

Please run following command lines to print your PDF file to try again, can you print your PDF file properly with Letter paper size?

pdfprint.exe -printer "YourPrinter" -paper "612x792pt" -printermargins D:\input.pdf

pdfprint.exe -printer "YourPrinter" -paper "11x17in" -printermargins D:\input.pdf

Printing letter size works fine, always has. It won't print 11x17 though, it comes out on letter. Is there something else I can try?

You may run following command line to try again,

pdfprint.exe -printer "YourPrinter" -paper 17 -printermargins D:\input.pdf

"-paper 17" is the DMPAPER_11X17, 11x17 in, we hoping this option will useful to you.

I have tried that setting and it doesn't work for a couple of printers here. I have also tried forcing the use of the 11x17 tray and that doesn't work either.

I have tried every setting I can think of to make it print 11x17 and it won't.

Do you have any other suggestions?

You may use "-paper 3" to try again, can you work fine with "-paper 3" option?

pdfprint.exe -printer "YourPrinter" -paper 3 -printermargins D:\input.pdf

You can also run following command lines to try again, we hoping the following command lines will useful to you,

pdfprint.exe -shell C:\test.pdf
pdfprint.exe -shell2 C:\test.pdf

No, I tried the "-paper 3" option and that doesn't work either. The shell option is not useful to us either. I built a program that calls yours to print pdfs from a queue in an automated fashion. This has to work with no user input.

I don't understand why the "-paper 17" works on some of the printers and not all of them.

We suggest you may by following steps to try again,

1. Please run following command line to prompt the user Printer Dialog and save the printer settings to a disk file,

pdfprint.exe -savedevmode D:\printer.dat -printer "Your Printer Name"

2. In the Printer Dialog, you can set following options, such as,

set "Duplex" option to "Top-Top" or others;
set default paper tray to "Tray 3" or others;
set the paper size to "11x17" or others;
set other options that you want;

click "OK" to close Printer Dialog, you will get a D:\printer.dat file,

3. Please run following command line to load the devmode from disk file and set it to printer,

pdfprint.exe -loaddevmode D:\printer.dat -printer "Your Printer Name" D:\input.pdf

4. OK, you will able to print your PDF file with correct options.

We hoping above solution will helpful to you, please to try.
