Crop to trim: Page size may not be reduced ERROR

Apr 26, 2011 6:24 AM

I have a client wanting the complete back catalogue of his journal's hi-res PDFs supplied but without the trim marks, printer's info and bleed. This ought to be easy enough - Acrobat will trim a PDF for me and I can automate the process. Except that it won't. I go Documents > Crop Pages... and set all the options for cropping to  the Trim Box, but nothing happens. If I try putting in the page size measurements manually, I get the error message 'Page size cannot be reduced'. Seeing as I've arrived via the Crop Pages option on the document menu I can't think I'm in the wrong place. Why won't Acrobat crop my pages?


I'm on Acrobat Pro 9 fully up to date on OS X 10.6.7

    I have this exact same question.  It simply won't crop.


    Why is this bug not being fixed?
