cropping pdf with preview

Hi,

I tried pdfCropper's sample output, it makes reading pdf easier, however pdfCropper does not run in OS X, so I have to find a OS X tool for the cropping task. I tried Preview and Skim, all crops very well, but when the pdf is loaded into sony prs 505, the margin is still there, any way to remove those margins? Thanks,

Wang

I don't know but here is a thread that gives some pointers on PDF conversion.

If you ever find a definitive answer to this question, I'll be interested in hearing it

Cheers,
David.

It works for me:
  • Find a page that will allow you to find the margins
  • Select the crop box with dashed-box tool (you can drag and resize the box)
  • Select Thumnails for the sidebar and click one of the pages
  • Hit Command-A to move the crop box selection to all pages
  • Hit Command-K to crop
  • Save

Not nearly as nice as soPdf (Windows only, as far as I know), and the Mac will sometimes balloon the size of the PDF, but it works well enough.
