Legal to Letter Cropper Description
...Back to Downloads
Legal to Letter - converts legally formated TIFF files to a combination of Legal and Letter page sizes for those page sizes that:
If the white space at the top of the document + the white space at the bottom of the doucment adds up to 3 or more inches, then reduce the size of the page to letter.
Supports converting single input files to a single output file, or can be set up to input from a list of files, creating a single output file.
Primary Use:
When converting PDF documents to TIFF, the Acrobat PDF viewer always scales the image to fit the default page size. There is therefore no automatic way to convert documents that have both legal and letter sizes to into an equivalent legall / letter TIFF file.
The solution is to set the default paper size to LEGAL, then post-process the resultant TIFF files to get back the true page sizes.

Same problem occurs when converting DCX files to TIFF, printing from a DCX viewer.
