Cropping Pages Permanently with Acrobat Pro
This is my second post and I wanted to share an information I found lately. I wanted to remove the header and footer but couldn't manage it with Calibre since the header seemed intricate and very variable to me and tried to crop the pages with Acrobat and it seemed that it only hid the info not actually removing it. Lately I found that I can removed the hid info just like this:
"Document -> examine document
There you can delete the hidden information."
It seemed helpful to me and I'm not gonna throw the pdf files that I cannot read on Kindle anymore.
Good luck on that!

1. Open your pdf with Adobe Acrobat Pro.
2. Click Tools >> Pages >> Crop
Set margins and crop document. You can use different page range, odd and event page settings.
3. Once you cropped your file Click Tools >> Protection >> Remove hidden information.
4. You will see Status: Finding hidden information, then Results . Once all the hidden information found, you can check/uncheck each group of information.
5. Click Remove.
6. Save your document. You have removed page numbers and headers and other information that you cropped out, permanently.
Note: Dropping cropped pdf into Calibre directly may not yield good results. Especially if you have unicode characters on your pdf. Better option, first convert it html first.
7. Now, lets save our pdf as html before converting it into mobi or epub document. Click File >> Save As >> More Options >> Html Web Page
If you cant save your file as html, make sure you unchecked "Run OCR if needed". For that, click "Settings" on "Save As" screen.
You can do some manual fix befor conversion if you like.
8. Drag and drop html file into Calibre, and set TOC and other stuff and convert.

Brilliant solution. I have been searching and trying many different CLI tools but this worked where others utterly failed. Thanks!
