Crop to trim bounding box for PDF proofs

Post by robr » Fri Jun 14, 2019 12:57 am

Hello... I'm hoping to crop a PDF to trim bounding box to create a PDF proof for clients (eliminating bleed and crop marks). Input PDFs are all different sizes but all with correct page geometry. Seems very simple but I have been unable to find an action to accomplish this. Anyone doing this and how do you do it?

It's quite easy to do.
Just change all page boxes to trim box and you're done.
To add the bleed again, simply increase all page boxes except for the trim box 10 mm in all directions.

You're welcome.
It's the action I use for the same thing in a Switchflow I have... :lol:
