Does anyone know how to enlarge Adobe pdf file to margins of page for printing on a full sheet of paper? I am using the free reader version, & can get it to enlarge somewhat by using the zoom feature, but then what happens is that all the text/image shifts to the right side of the paper instead of enlarging the entire document as a whole.

Thought I could maybe open the file in another program to make it work, but no go...

Any ideas on how to do this? I need to print out small print manuals/schematics that are hard to read in their current size.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

I love my PDF-XChange Viewer! It is a nice freeware app that is quite robust. The feature you are looking for is 'Fit Page' which is in the center of the upper tool bar.

Hi Animal,

Thanks. I installed this pgm. & clicked on "fit page". Still not quite what I need. I need to be able to actually adjust the print margins just like I can in wordpad, etc. In other words, set the right/left & even the top/bottom margins to .25, or something like that so I can fill up the page with text, etc.

Is there a setting that I am missing?
