    Not sure why you think it should be easy. It isn't the sort of thing done in Acrobat. It's done as part of the authoring/design process before making a PDF.

    Running this code from the JS console will add a black border to the current page. Change the value of the width property to get a thinner or thicker border:


    this.addAnnot({ page: this.pageNum, rect: this.getPageBox("Crop", this.pageNum) , type: "Square", strokeColor:, opacity: 1, width: 10});


    It's also possible to include this in a more complex script that will process all the pages in a file and be launched from a menu item.
