When ever I crop an area of a PDF, save, then import that PDF into InDesign, the uncropped area still shows in InDesign. Even on thumbnail images. It appears as that when you use the crop tool in Acrobat, that it really does not crop the PDF, it only changes the appearance in the PDF viewer so you no longer see the uncropped area. Is there something that will ACTUALLY crop the PDF so it does not appear when imported in InDesign and on thumbnail images?
I posted this over a month ago. Anyone able to provide an answer to this question?
That is the way Acrobat handles cropping.
However, you can choose Tools > Print Production > Preflight and search for the Fixup called Crop All Pages to Bounding Box.
The document probably has a trim box or art box. The rule is that
- Acrobat uses the crop box to show the page
- When placing a page the art box or trim box should be used
