    I have someone's pdf but it is 8.5 x 11 and I want to change it to 6x9. I thought it would be enough to save it as word and then work there. But this doesn't work. Word complains about columns, margins etc. I can't make it happy.
    I would prefer to do in the pdf.

    any ideas? thanks, Frank

    Did you try converting it to a word document first?

    try using this
    http://smallpdf.com/compress-pdf

    you can do other things also options are on the top , have a play with it and see if it works for you

    Word uses the page size of the currently active printer. You may need to set up a virtual printer with the sizes you want.

    Import it into word, select / create a new page size, apply to the entire document and then save as pdf.
    Should work.

    Do you have the full version of Acrobat (not just Reader) or another PDF printing program? You can print your current PDF to PDF and change the print size to 6x9. That'll leave you with a new 6x9 PDF.
