Why is this such a hardship in 2021? I have a document. I love it. It is perfect. I want to do one thing... CHANGE THE SIZE OF THE PAGES FROM 8.5 INCHES SQUARE to 6.875 INCHES SQUARE.

 

I have spent so many hours on this. Why can't Acrobat JUST DO IT?!?!

The first option is the better one, on both platforms. The second option requires "re-frying" the file, which is never a good idea if it can be avoided.
