I use the following code :


I also tried many pdfpages options such as fitpaper, templatesize, noautoscale, scale and so forth.

I also tried with other pdf files.

The result is always the same, I have the correct amount of page inserted in my final pdf but each of them and incredibly small.

enter image description here

  • Give "thumbnails" a new meaning. Did you try with some other pdf-file? Did you try to scale the pages (scale=10 or so)? – Ulrike Fischer Sep 2 '15 at 15:09
  • Yes I also tried scale=10 and also others pdf files with the same result. – hadim Sep 2 '15 at 15:13

    Other pdf files from the same source? What happens when you try an image from the mwe package with \includepdf{example-image}? Can you make a small but complete example and show the code and the log file? – Ulrike Fischer Sep 2 '15 at 15:19
  • I found the command which is responible for the small scaling : \setkeys{Gin}{width=\maxwidth,height=\maxheight,keepaspectratio}. This is generated by pandoc and I also found an old bug submitted there github.com/jgm/pandoc-templates/issues/72 – hadim Sep 2 '15 at 15:34
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Martin Schröder Sep 3 '15 at 13:22

This is actually a known pandoc issue : https://github.com/jgm/pandoc-templates/issues/72

To resolve it you need to use your own template. Use pandoc -D latex > template.tex to generate it. Then find the following line :


and comment it.

Next, call pandoc with this argument : --template=template.tex

Works like a charm for me.

  • The only thing is that removing this line make all the figure to not automatically scale well according to page size... :-( – hadim Sep 7 '15 at 12:56
