cropping with accuracy in Acrobat X
« on: June 05, 2014, 03:00:58 PM »
Is there any way of accurately cropping a pdf in Acrobat 10? I want to crop the page to a 1/8 in perimeter bleed around a dieline and can't seem to find a way of doing it accurately.

Drop it into indy and place it where you want.  :grin:

COMMAND+OPTION+T should bring up the dialog where you can enter the exact numbers you want.

Oops...that key combo doesn't work any longer I guess. Under the Tools on the right side select Pages and then click the crop tool. Then double click anywhere on the window and it will bring it up.

I never crop PDFs - I use Pitstop to change the page boxes to what I want. Of course, if you don't have Pitstop, then crop away!

Acrobat X and XI don't actually do a destructive crop. It just changes page boxes.

I ended up deleting all of the s**t outside the dieline perimeter using Acro X and then optimized the pdf thru Nexus, which cropped out all of the surrounding space outside the dieline.
