Can you hard crop a PDF and make it final?

I know how to crop a PDF in Acrobat, but its more of a soft crop meaning you can undo the crop later if you wanted.

 

My issue is that I have some websites I regularly upload print ready PDFs to that verify the PDF size.  They always see the PDF at its actual size and not the cropped size.  The only way I can find to get around this is to drop the PDF into InDesign and make a new PDF at the size I need.  This just takes a lot of extra time and files.  Can the PDF be cropped in Acrobat in a way so its final and considered the new actual size of it?

Hi @Vico Drive 

 

Hope you are doing well and thanks for reaching out.

 

Please go through the section, Create and use a custom page size in the help page: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/using-pdf-printer.html and see if that works for you.

 

Let us know if you are referring to something else.

That would probably work, it creates a second PDF file which is pretty much what I do already with dropping the orignal PDF in InDesign.  Is there a way to just keep it to the original file, changing its properties to be the new cropped size?
