Cannot crop white space in text-only PDF

Apr 5, 2012 5:29 PM

Hey guys


I have a 1750-page PDF, and each page has one paragraph on it. (I want the paragraph numbers to correspond to the page numbers for easy navigation, but that's another story.) I want each page to be cropped to the length of the paragraph, plus .75" margins all around. When I try to use the crop tool, nothing happens. If I extract one page and try to crop that, nothing happens when I click okay in the dialog box.


The document is plain text exported from iWork Pages with no tables in it (it's got two collumns, though, I don't think that would matter) The only thing in the document is text and collumn breaks. Nothing else. I'm on a mac (obviously) running Acrobat Pro 9.5.0.


How do I fix this?

    How do you define the crop area?
