Generate a pdf from a mail where inline images are larger than A4 page using Java

Hi, I’m trying pdf file larger than A4, like A3. Reason is that I want to generate a pdf from a mail where inline image are larger than the page A4.

Is it possible ?

For A4, I’m doing so :

	int dpi = 72;
	pdfSaveOptions.setHeight(842 * dpi / 72);
	pdfSaveOptions.setWidth(595 * dpi / 72);

For A3, I’m doing so :

	int dpi = 72;
	pdfSaveOptions.setHeight(2 * 595 * dpi / 72);
	pdfSaveOptions.setWidth(842 * dpi / 72);

But it doesn’t work, the page is indeed A3, but the conversion just enlarge the whole content, so that the inlinge images are still cut.

Best regards,


In order to investigate this issue at our end, we need following details:

  • API version
  • Problematic files along-with their output


In fact, my question is more is there a way to set the oritentation to landscape , so that image are larger

Currently, there is no such feature in the API. But we are investigating the possibility of adding page orientation option in the API. Your investigation ticket ID is CONVERSIONJAVA-596. As we have any further update, we’ll notify you.


You can just swap width and height:

pdfSaveOptions.setWidth(2 * 595 * dpi / 72);
pdfSaveOptions.setHeight(842 * dpi / 72);
