Crop PDFs


MatzR

Idea

Hi,

 

How do you deal with pdf's which show much more than you actually need?

I want use Skitch to add comments to details of a technical drawing which normally prints on A1. So I would like to crop the pdf showing only the relevant part. I'm pretty sure someone else must have had the same problem before...

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Regards

Skitch isn't capable of this it doesn't seem. You could try a more sophisticated application like Readdle's PDF Expert 5 or PDF Converter. If I have a moment today I'll see if I can do this with PDF Expert 5. 

 

Otherwise, I know that Adobe Acrobat can do this on desktop computers. If this is a really big deal you might have to bite the bullet and go down that road.

I am also interested in this issue. I have a PDF text book for my stats class and we are expected to bring formula sheets to the exam. On my MacBook Skitch lets me do a crosshair snapshot, and I can take just the formula and paste it into my sheet in a Word doc, evernote note etc. Perfect! Now what about on ipad? The feature is not available.

 

I am new to my ipad mini 2, but although I've downloaded various apps and searched for a solution, I can't find a quick easy way to clip out just the formulas I need.

 

Any ideas? Is it the ios that is constraining the ability of Skitch to perform the crosshair snapshot? Or could I make this a (do-able) feature request?

 

Help appreciated!

Actually there is a pretty simple solution:

1. Open the PDF in full screen view.

2. Zoom and pan to have the see only the area you want to crop.

3. Take screenshot (Home-Button + on/off-Button)

4. Open Skitch and get the image from your Photos.
