    How do I scale from A4 to Letter WITHOUT printing to PDF?

      How do I scale from A4 (8.27”x11.69”) to Letter (8.5”x11.00”) WITHOUT printing to PDF?

      I do NOT want to “print to PDF” because that greatly reduces the quality of my document and changes the colors.

      I do NOT have access to the original Word document.

      I am using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.

      If I try to use Document > Crop Pages > Change Page Size > Fixed Sizes > Page Sizes, I cannot select the ‘Letter’ option from the dropdown (it is greyed-out). Apparently you can only scale to a page size that is LARGER than your UNCROPPED area, which means cropping down to 8.27”x11.00” first doesn’t work.

      I have googled and tried EVERY possible way of permanently deleting the cropped area (removing hidden information, running a preflight, etc.), but nothing actually works. Either the cropped area still appears in the ‘Crop Pages’ screen, or (even if I can get it to disappear from the ‘Crop Pages’ screen) the text under the preview still reads “Cropped page size: 8.268”x11.000”, which means the ‘Letter’ option in the dropdown is still greyed-out.

      Please help!!
