When first trying to crop in Acrobat X I had no clue how to crop, as it is different then it was in previous versions. This instructable will show you step by step, how to crop in Acrobat X.

To get started open a PDF in Acrobat X on your computer.

Step 1: Creating a CropBox

The first step is creating a CropBox. This is the area that tells Acrobat X what you wish to crop.

With the document open in Acrobat X, go to the Pages panel, and select Crop.
On the document, draw a rectangle of the area you wish to crop.
Once this is done you may move, or resize the CropBox as you wish.
<p>Adobe Acrobat is definitely awesome, but most of people like me could not afford to it. I just find a cost effective but easy to use alternative which could be our choice, here is <a href="http://bit.ly/1dhKU3e" rel="nofollow">the guide</a> about how to crop pages with it. Hope it helps.</p>
<p>Worked like a charm. I'm used to looking for things in the menu bar. I suppose Adobe does things differently. Thanks!</p>
<p>Thanks! I was trying to manage the upgrade intuitively, but was missing the double click! So easy once you know, thanks for guiding the way. :)</p>
This isn't a permanent crop though, the area outside the crop box is still there.
I just did a search on the Acrobat Help page and found no help for cropping. Thank you for the Instructable.
