Topic: Question: Setting margins for Acrobat Distiller
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 146766

Hello All,

I wonder if anyone can help me in relation the following problem. All of the output documents our company produces in Excel, Powerpoint and Publisher are converted to PDF format using the Acrobat Distiller for security purposes. The only problem with this is that the PDF versions of these original documents display different margin settings that shrink the page contents considerably.

Is there any way to configure the Acrobat Distiller page setup so that it retains the margin settings of the original file formats (excel, powerpoint, publisher etc) when distilling to pdf?

To date, the only settings I have come across in the Distiller Page Setup menu are a 'Page Size' parameter but nothing concerning margins. Any help you may have on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
