Hi again,

I have a document the margins of which is larger than the content. Trying to crop to take away the margins I receive the same results of the original.

Any suggestion so the documented is actually cropped when printed?

Thnx

You are using the Crop tool in Acrobat Pro?

Ok, what did you expect to change on the printout? Please be exact.

Hi... I went to:

Edit PDF then Crop pages...

Is there any other way to Crop the document?

The problem is that the crop only works on the screen and not when the document is printed out...

I'm sorry, I still don't understand what you mean. If you crop a margin (white space), should the printout change? What did you expect to change?

I want the print to be the same as on the screen... meaning to stretch the writing over the margins...

Does the print preview in Acrobat match what you get printed?

What option do you choose when you print? Fit, actual size, shrink oversized, or custom scale?

Yes it does... By the way in the print preview I see the original document and the cropped one...

I tried all... I think acrobat does not recognise the crop when the document is sent to printing

I tried everything , actual size, shrink oversized, or custom scale...

You mean custom scale has no effect? For example if you say 200%, actually nothing changes?

Are you by any chance trying to print to the very edge of the paper, with no margin at all? If so, can you do this from any other app?

The scale will not help... the text is not located in the center of the document and hence scaling will increase the whole document size.

I been told their the cropping problem can be fixed through Preflight but I do not know how...

Not to the very edge... with little or "normal" edge.... I did not try with other programs... Is it difficult to be adjusted with Adobe Acrobat with all its tools???

How close are you trying to print to the edge? Most printers have a margin you cannot make any smaller. Acrobat can't print in it. Maybe that's what's happening to you.

Hi... the margin I'm trying to keep is the normal one. The printer I'm working on is an office professional one... so I do not think the problem is the printer because it prints other pages normally...

I still have no real idea what you are doing, since for me cropping works exactly as I expect. Let’s go back a step. After you crop the pages, do they all show up on screen, cropped just how you want them?
