    Reducing margins when printing PDF files


    This is my first post to this forum, so hello to all!

    I would like to print the book I downloaded from the Net (, but the problem is that the margins in the PDF file are too large. I want to print 2 pages on one page (ie. on one side of a sheet of paper) and the margins are not only on the borders but also in the center of the sheet. They occupy about 1/3 of a page.

    Is there any printing filter which is able to reduce the size of the margins? Or maybe a program that would be able to remove them from a pdf file?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    I use adobe 6.0 full version and delete what i don't want in the pdf then print them out. Thats the only way that I know of to do that.

    Yes, this can be done. There is a free utility called "PDF Tools"
    that lets you crop a PDF file and save it with a new name.
