Cropping is the process of selecting part of a page in a PDF document and discarding the rest of the page.

To crop a page in a PDF document:
1. Select the crop tool from the tool bar or by choosing Tools > Super Crop.
2. Click and drag over the part of the page you want to keep. When you release the mouse button, the crop marquee will appear as a box with handles at each corner.
3. (Optional) To move the marquee to a new location, hold the Ctrl key as you drag a corner handle. To scale the marquee, drag one of the handles. To constrain the proportions while scaling, hold down Shift as you drag a corner handle.
4. To continue the cropping process, click once inside the marquee. To cancel the cropping operation, click once outside the marquee.
5. In the Pages to Crop dialog box, select a crop option (i.e., the current page crop or all pages), then click OK.

The bounding box of a page is the smallest rectangular region that includes all the text and graphics on that page. Cropping to the bounding box of a page eliminates extraneous white space at the margins of the page. The media box of a page is the original size of that page.

To crop the current page or all pages to the bounding box of the page:
1. Choose Plug-Ins > Super Crop > Crop Page(s) to Bounding Box.
2. Click Current to crop only the current page, or click All to crop all pages.
3. If you chose to crop all pages, click Each to crop each page to its own bounding box, or click Biggest to crop all pages to the largest bounding box of all the pages.

To restore a cropped page to the media box of that page:
1. Choose Plug-Ins > Super Crop > Reset Page(s) to Media Box.
2. Click Current to restore only the current page, or click All to restore all cropped pages.

To revert to the last saved version of your PDF document:
Choose File > Revert.

To see the original size of a cropped page, choose View > Actual Size. The red line represents the media box -- the original size of the page. You can hide the media box by choosing Plug-Ins > Super Crop > Hide Media Box.

Super Crop adds a Revert command to the File menu. The command reverses all changes made to the PDF document since it was last saved. However, you cannot revert PDF documents opened from within container applications (e.g., Lotus Notes) if the document has not yet been saved.

The Super Crop tool and menu items are unavailable in PDFs with an owner password and the Changing the Document property set to "Not Allowed." To crop such a document, recreate or resave the PDF document so that the Changing the Document property is set to "Allowed." For information about PDF security and the Changing the Document property, see pages 199-201 in the Adobe Acrobat Exchange 3.0 Online Guide.

If you hold down the Ctrl key while selecting the Super Crop tool, the bounding box of the page will become the crop marquee. If you continue to hold down Ctrl while you click on another tool, the crop marquee will be retained. This enables you to zoom in on the crop region.

You cannot rotate the crop marquee. Crop regions must be a minimum of 1 inch by 1 inch and a maximum of 45 inches by 45 inches.
