    Cannot crop white space in text-only PDF

    wwwzap

      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?

       

      Thanks
