Cropping PDFs with Mac's Preview

Trying to get rid of headers, footers and page numbers by cropping the multi-page PDF in Preview. I then want to select all the text and paste it into a TXT or RTF file. Problem is that even though I have cropped the image, when I select all the text of the document it still copies all the cropped data. Even though you can't see it, its still there in the background. Very strange! Is there a way round it?

Cropping just hides things. It doesn't delete them. You'll need to use the remove header/footer options.

I tried to use it but its always a pain to use with those expressions.

I just tried Briss on PC and it seems to do the trick, but I couldn't get it to launch on my Mac.
