Crop Page options Greyed out in Win 7 Pro Acrobat X Standard

Jan 20, 2011 4:17 PM

Why is this dialogue window greyed out?  The only thing I can manipulate is the units.  I would Very Much like to be able to manually set the crop limits.

I would think it large nonsense if I had to buy Acrobat X Pro just set the crop limits.  Is this a bug/known issue? If so are there designs on fixing it?

If there is a setting to allow me access to it, where is it?  I would love to be able to check the Remove White Margins box.

    The Acrobat X Standard do have the options for the crop pages.

    Please try a different file and check whether it is enabled. If you still have the issue, try repairing the Acrobat.

    Has there been any resolution to this problem? I am experiencing the same thing.

    I am also frustrated by the same problem.  I am running a fresh install of Windows7 and Acrobat X Standard.  My HP Officejet Pro L7680 has a legal size scanner that I use extensively.  Previously with Acrobat 8 Standard I had no problem using the crop tool as needed to resize an entire document from legal size to letter size.  I paid for the Acrobat X Standard upgrade assuming this function would still be there.  But the option to crop to a specific size is greyed out.  Is this a bug will be fixed at some point, or has this function been permanently withdrawn from Acrobat X Standard?  Please let us know.

    Thanks,

    JFL

    If you are stuck with this problem, try PDFill PDF Tools 8.0.  It can be downloaded for free from www.download.com.  It includes a simple utility that can crop all the pages in a document to a specific size.  It is working well for me.  I still can't believe that Adobe would fail to include this function in Acrobat Standard.  It doesn't make sense!
