Resizing individual pages within a PDF

I need help figuring out how to resize individual pages within a document. I am creating a new PDF by inserting individual PDFs into it to create one master document. Those individual PDFs come in different sizes: letter, legal, and executive.  The final Master PDF needs to print 8.5 x 11 for all pages EXCEPT one page needs to print as legal (8.5 x 14).

When I insert the PDFs, they all print in their original sizes so the document comes out with all three pages sizes. I did figure out how to change the print settings so that the entire document prints as 8.5x11 (letter), but that doesn't solve my need for one page printed larger.

QUESTION: Does anyone know how to get the final result I am looking for?

I was thinking I could shrink the individual PDFs down to 8.5x11 before I insert them into the Master. And only leave the one page as 8.5x14. But the only options I find for that are in the Print Options, which doesn't actually change the size of the document. Any other ideas?

(Hopefully I explained this well enough. If needed, below is the version I am using.)

As you have shared the screenshot you are using Fit option in printing, You have to select the option 'shrink'. I t will shrink your oversized pages to the selected level and you will get same sized prints.Good Luck.

You should be able to get this without changing PDF pages sizes (which is hard) but by using page fitting settings in the print dialog.

Thank you for replying.

I've tried using the print dialog. Can you direct to me to where specifically?

If I choose "Fit", it prints all pages on 8.5x11. If I choose "Actual size", it prints each page in it's original size and orientation (letter, legal, executive, portrait, landscape...).

What I need is a way to print all pages as 8.5x11 with only ONE page printed at 8.5x14.

Sorry, I misunderstood. I don't think you can do that. You could print all pages but the one, then the odd one with different settings.

Is there a way to complete change the size of the original documents? I used about 15 different PDFs and added them together into a master PDF. Can I go into the individual PDFs, change their size to Letter. Then replace the resized document in the master PDF?

I'm having the same problem--I DON'T want to print, I want to size all the documents already IN the pdf to be the same size. It look sunprofessional when scrolling and suddenly one document is giant and oversized.
