Remove crop from all images / Select all images in document

So I have this problem - institution that provided PDF had someone who doesn't really know how to edit PDF add watermark to their PDFs. Now problem is (Image 1) that images are cropped too much and there is line or two missing. 

I managed to go around it with Preflight and "Resize to custom size" to get more white space. But my next problem is that I need to go page-by-page and manually select every image and press "Remove crop" (Image 2) to get result I want (Image 3). CRTL+A doesn't work since it only select all elements on one page. 

Is there any way to SELECT EVERYTHING on ALL PAGES, and simply right click and press "Remove crop" that will apply for all pages. My document is hundreds of pages long, and going manually would take ages.

Also, I tried setting page crop to zero, but that didn't help since it is not pages itself that are cropped, but Images on them. 

I also tried export all images, hoping that Acrobat would maybe export uncropped images, so I would just need to recreate document from images, but exported images are also cropped so that solution didn't work.

 

Thanks!

I wonder if you tried to apply a new crop, at the size of the full page.

This would apply to the whole file and override the previous crop.

Doesn't work sadly. Problem is that it's not page itself that is cropped, but image/content on page. So applying new crop on page or setting page crop to zero doesn't help since crop is applied to image.

You should use "Set Pages Boxes" in the Print Production tools.

Hey, thanks for suggestion, but I already tried that and it doesn't work.

Problem is that page itself is not cropped, but image on page have custom crop. Any idea how I can set new crop/remove crop for all content on page or is it only possible to crop all pages?

THis leads me to wonder if another user applied something else than a standard cropping, maybe using a tool other than Acrobat.

What does the property panel indicate for creation and modification application? (File>Properties)

Otherwise this should work (I know you tried it)

Undo cropping

Cropping a PDF does not reduce file size because information is merely hidden, not discarded. By resetting the page size, you can restore the page and its content to its original condition.

  • Open the Set Page Boxes dialog box by choosing Crop Pages from the options menu 

     

     

     in the Page Thumbnails panel of the navigation pane.

  • Click the Set To Zero button to reset the margins to the original page dimensions.
