I want to take a 2 page pdf and transform it into a 1 page pdf; to a page, say 22 inches long...

Apr 22, 2010 6:12 PM

I have a 2 page pdf that consists of 2 letter, or 8.5x11 inch, pages;

 

I want to print this to a page that's say twice as long as that what is now a 2 page document becomes a 1 page document.

 

I've tried to set the page size in the Print Setup dialog where I've selected PostScript Custom Page Size, but this setting seems to do nothing.

 

Where can I set the size of the page so that Acrobat Pro 9.2 uses that size to create a new page--When I say Create PDF From Blank Page I still get a letter size page.

 

Any and all help is much appreciated!

    Take a look at Quite imposing from Quite software: www.quite.com

    You can try printing to a new PDF with a 2-up selection and the desired paper size. However, I am not sure you can adjust the rotation to what you are describing.

    Something to try.


    Open a test copy of your two page, 8.5 x 11 each, PDF.
    Open the Crop Tool dialog.
    Tools > Advanced Editing > Crop Tool
    With the cursor anywhere in page, double click.
    At the bottom of the Crop Pages dialog you will see the Change Page Size pane.
    Tick the 'Custom' selection.
    Enter 8.5 for the value of Width and 22 for the value of Height.
    In the adjacent Page Range pane, select 'All' of 'From: --- '  and 'To: ---'
    as appropriate.
    Note the 'Apply to:' choice as well.

     

    Once configured, click OK.
    Your Page Range selection becomes 8.5 x 22.

     

    Reduce page magnification and, perhaps select a scroll page view.
    Use the TouchUp Object tool to marquee a graphics object and nudge/move it about on a page or between pages.

     

    About File > Create PDF > From Blank Page.
    The page size for this is determined by the values used in the "New Document" Category of Acrobat's Preferences.

    The page size choices are limited to those in the drop-down menu.
    An alternative for creating a custom page size PDF via MS Word is discussed in this thread:
