Scale a document for printing

Acrobat can automatically scale a PDF to fit the paper.

  1. Choose File > Print.
  2. Click Size (Acrobat 10.1.2) or open the Page Scaling menu (Acrobat 10.1.1 or earlier) and choose one of the following options:
    Fit (or Fit to Printable Area)
    Scales small pages up and large pages down to fit the paper.

    Shrink Oversize Pages (or Shrink to Printable Area)
    Resizes only large pages to fit the paper, and prints small pages as they are.

    Note: If you don’t see a Page Scaling options, click the arrow next to the Printer menu to expose more controls in the Print dialog box.
