Hey guys,

I'm frustrated that every PDF document that I open has the white border around it. How can I remove that in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro?

I tried and looked everywhere in the preferences but couldn't find it.

Would really appreciate some help with this if anyone knows.

thank you

Hrvoje

There isn't a global setting that does that. You will need to crop out the white margins from your files, either individually or in an Action, if you have Acrobat Pro.

Doesn't happen to me. Please download and try out https://www.adobe.com/be_en/active-use/pdf/Alice_in_Wonderland.pdf  . What I see on the first page is red running to the sides and a yellow pattern in the centre. And behind it the grey of the app background. No white line.

Ah, I didn't even see that. But, yes, I do see a white line. I imagine it's there to show where the edge is, when pages are the same grey as the window. Or someone's idea of decoration, developers do like to impress us with this sort of thing. It's a light grey as it turns out, not white, and for me it's only on the top and left sides. No option to turn it off.

The solution I found in my versin of Adobe Acrobat is to go to the Organize Pages section for editing pdfs, select all pages, right click and select "Crop Pages", then select Remove White Border.  I couldn't do it by doing  the "Edit PDF -> Crop Pages" route.
