PDF Batch Print Scaling Issue. How to print PDF file to 24"x36" paper size? Printing PDF files with scaling. Scale or resize printed pages. Page scaling lets you shrink or enlarge pages when you print.

Dear Team,

I just downloaded PDF Batch Print so that I may send over multiple PDF architectural sheets that are 24"x36" to mt Canon ipf 680. Unfortunately, the drawings come out incorrectly sized. They are scaled down to 8 1/2"x11". I have verified that the scaling setting is set to NONE. Still, I only get 8 1/2"x11" plots. The drawings print fine from the actual PDF directly to the plotter not using the Batch software so this is an issue with the Batch utility. Is this a limitation on the Trial Version?

I do need to plot drawings this evening if possible.

Thank you in advance,

We suggest you may download PDFPrint Command Line from following web page to try,


after you download it, you may run following command line to print your PDF file to target printer,

pdfprint.exe -paper "24x36in" D:\test.pdf


pdfprint.exe -printer "docPrint" -paper "24x36in" D:\test.pdf


pdfprint.exe -printer "docPrint" -paper pdf D:\test.pdf

We hoping [-paper "24x36in"] option will work better for you, please to try.


I am generating a PDF and I am wondering if there is a way to set the document's properties to to default to print with no scaling.

So when you select print from the print dialogue menu, scaling is set to none. I'm trying to determine if this is a user setting or something I can control in the creation of the PDF.

Thanks in advance.
Scaling is controlled by the PDF application - it is not set in the file.



Printing PDF files "to scale" -- 25%, 50%, etc.

We often receive PDF drawings from architects that are *to scale* on large sheets (24x36 or 30x42). We would like to print these drawings on a smaller sheet, using a particular scale, such as 50%.

Is it possible to print PDF files to 50% or 25% scale? Acrobat Reader 7 does not allow you to change scale (percent) -- it only allows printing at 1:1 scale, which is not helpful when I want to print sets at half-size.

Is there another program out there that will do this?

Thanks in advance,


You can use -paper or -scale or -scalex and -scaley options to control the scaling, for example,

pdfprint.exe -printer "PDFcamp Printer" -copies 3 -paper 9 C:\input.pdf
pdfprint.exe -printer "PDFcamp Printer" -paper "pdf" C:\input.pdf
pdfprint.exe -printer "PDFcamp Printer" -paper "11x17in" C:\input.pdf
pdfprint.exe -printer "PDFcamp Printer" -paper "215.9x279.4mm" C:\input.pdf
pdfprint.exe -printer "PDFcamp Printer" -paper "612x792pt" C:\input.pdf
pdfprint.exe -printer "docPrint" -paper "612x792pt" -orient 1 C:\input.pdf
