```Hello,

I have the following problem:

I have a pdf of A1 size, i.e. 4x2 A4 (width x height).

I'd like to put it to A3 paper.

I'm trying to use \pdfpages package for it; unfortunately, I'm not able to get the desired effect.

When I used \includepdf[fitpaper,scale=.5]{OP1-P.pdf} (only one page), the original pdf is scaled in such way that A1 becomes A3 (4x2 A4 -> 2x1 A4) - that's OK.

But the page size keeps the original size of the pdf, that is A1! - That's unwanted.

Any idea how to solve the problem?

- Maybe I could use \includegraphis instead of \includepdf; but I cannot (= don't know how to) switch successfully to A3 (landscape), reset page margins to zero, put the pdf on the page and restore the original lengths (paper size and margins) after that.
