Topic: Croping and File Sizes

Recently I've been given scanned documents to convert to fillable forms.

In the scan process these files were cropped to very small margins which causes a range of issues so I've been looking for a way to add white space to the sides, kind of a reverse crop. (I'm sure there's a better term, but that's all I know.)

Any help in this area would be great.

HOWEVER I also came across something I need help understanding.

I found that when I crop a document, re-save (either through "reduce file size" or "pdf otimizer" both of which I thought removed past editing), the pre-crop information is still there. This means that you can effectively undo your crop even several versions of the document later.

This has to have an effect on overall file size, but also my I wonder if it's supposed to be like this? And why?
