Question:I was wondering if anyone had any experience in working with .pdf files. I have a .pdf file and I need to crop every page down to a certain size. After a quick Google search I found the some software but my experiments with it failed. When I changed the cropBox and trimBox attributes on a page the results were not what I had expected and appeared to be quite random.Has anyone had any experience with this? Is there any resolution on VeryPDF?
