Hello,

I would like combine two PDF files in one PDF file in A4 size portrait mode for all pages :

- a PDF file 210 mm x 210 mm

- another PDF in A4 size. 

 

Problem : on the PDF file in 210 mm x 210 mm, if I use the function "crop page"(edit mode), it does not change this page to an A4 page.

What is the adobe software that could do this the most easily ? and how to do this ?

You'll find a free Resize Pages tool here that will set all pages to the same size.

In Acrobat DC Pro you can scale pages with the preflight tool.

Apart from preflight tool, is there a script that could do that inside Acrobat Pro ?

The preflight tool can be scripted.  Create your own preflight profile that does the scaling you want and then run it from a script with the "doc.preflight" function. 

 

There is also a way to directly scale pages with a script, but it's clunky. Basically the script creates a new document with blank pages of the correct size and places a button on each page. Then import all the document original pages to the buttons, then flatten.

Hi Bernd, maybe you can tell me if there is some trick to input the desired short/long edge measurements when using the Scale Pages?  Previously, I could type in these measurements, but now the fields are not editable.  Thanks in advance!
