    Crop part of PDF without any (transparent) surroundings


      3down votefavorite



      I cropped figures (*.pdf) from scientific articles (*.pdf) with the excellent Krop tool by Armin Straub:


      Everything worked fine until I needed to convert my final thesis from the usual PDF format to PDF/A-1b format for archiving. Suddenly, the surrounding full page around the images (that is, the text around the cropped picture) becomes visible in the PDF/A output. Maybe because this format does not support transparency.

      Is their any way to solve this issue with Adobe Acrobat Reader Professional? By default, this program also crops by setting the surroundigs as transparent, but can I change this?
