How do I change the size of the PDF Document to A4 or US Legal?
I have a pre-existing Adobe Acrobat document that I need to simply edit by changing the Page Size to US Legal or A4 and re-arranging the content.
When the end user opens the .pdf document for viewing, it needs to display in A4 or US Legal.
I can do this very easily in Microsoft Word by simply selecting the Page Size as shown below and saving the document.

Yes, but PDF files are not Word documents. They are much more like a finished piece of paper. Acrobat has some minimal editing best kept for typos. There's nothing in the world that will reflow your document to a new page size. If that's what you want to do I suggest you export to Word then remake the PDF.
Thanks. That's what I ended up doing. I exported to Word, then changed the page size in word, then re-saved as a PDF.
I was hoping I could simply make the adjustment inside Acrobat Professional instead of going through the procedure you recommended, but apparently that's the only way to do it. Thanks again!
However, if you just wanted to change the size of the PDF, that is possible.
A "print-to-PDF" print driver can be utilized to adjust the size of the PDF, e.g., Adobe PDF, Microsoft Print to PDF, CutePDF.
Somewhat of a crude approach but it works and it's quick.
LAB JA , Thanks for that info, so when you do that, are you able to save a copy or just print it? I made one of my PDF way to big in Canva, made it fillable and trying to resave it without losing all the work I had to do making my guide fillable.
