In the Page Sizing and Handling section, you can choose from options including Fit, Actual Size, Custom Scale, and Shrink oversized pages. In this setting, you also have the opportunity to change the orientation and paper size of your documents.

  • Fit: This option adjusts the size of your document to fit within the printable area of the paper. It can scale down the content if necessary, but it won't scale it up if the document is smaller than the paper size.
  • Actual Size: This option prints the document at its original size, without any scaling. If your document is larger than the paper size, portions of it may be cut off in the printed output.
  • Custom Scale: This option allows you to manually enter a specific scaling percentage for your document. You can increase or decrease the scale to make the content larger or smaller as needed.
  • Shrink oversized pages: This option automatically scales down pages that are larger than the selected paper size to fit within it. If your document has pages that are larger than the paper, this option can ensure that the entire content is printed, albeit at a smaller size.

Method 2. How to Crop All PDF Pages the Same Size with UPDF's Crop Feature

Apart from the option to resize all of the PDF pages to fit, UPDF also gives you access to a crop PDF feature which can be used to achieve the same result of having all of your pages be the same size. This can be particularly useful in cases where you want to make all pages the same size but are looking to remove some of the information that is on the page.

To use the crop feature follow the steps outlined below:

Step 1: Open the PDF document you are interested in altering. On the left-hand side panel toolbar, choose the last option "Crop Pages".

Step 2: Adjust the purple grid lines that appeared on your document to decide which parts of the page need to be cropped.

While this is the simplest way of using the crop feature, there are also some more advanced cropping page options. You can find these by clicking on the "Options" button that is adjacent to the page view. The options include:

  • Margin Controls: Allows you to set the margins for the document by selecting the dimensions for the section.
  • Cropped Page Size: Define the height and width of each page, which will essentially mean you have provided the dimensions for the cropping.
  • Constrain Proportions: This allows you to constrain the margins on a PDF document page.

Step 3: You're allowed to crop multiple pages at once by clicking the "Apply Changes" option on the top-left corner. Toggle the Apply Changes option, select the page range, and decide to crop the margin or crop the page box. After adjusting the area desired and the page range, click on "Crop".

  • Crop the margins: Set up margin controls and apply them to the custom page range. Cropped page sizes might be different due to different page sizes.
  • Crop the page box: Apply the measurements of the cropping rectangle to the custom page range.

Disadvantages of Using PDF2GO

Using PDF2go is easy, all you need to do is upload the document you want to resize in the correct section and allow the online tool to resize it. However, there are some important drawbacks that come with using this tool.

Due to this being an online tool with no layers of protection, your document is most likely to be uploaded online unprotected. If your document contains any sensitive information then there could be problems associated with a version of the document circulating online.

Another big drawback of using this online tool is that there is no editing or preview feature, this means that after uploading your document you will simply need to trust that the online tool is performing the task correctly. However, until you download and open the PDF you will have no way of verifying whether or not the job has been completed correctly.
