Depending on the type of project you're working on, you may need to adjust the page size of your PDF file. This editing function is not always available in free applications like Adobe® Acrobat® Reader. Some PDF editing programs can use a virtual PDF printer, allowing users to adjust the size of the PDF file and save it as a printable option. However, the actual file size always remains the same, which is not always ideal. How can you change PDF page size? Below, we'll recommend two solutions for you with Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor.
