How To Change PDF Pages To Suit Printout?
I have an instruction manual pdf the pages of which I think represent scans of what was once a landscape page formatted manual.

So now each landscape page is merely a strip across the centre of an A4 or Letter page.

Altering print to landscape doesn't help because it still only occupies 1/3 of vertical available space.

I would like to make it bigger in the printout. Help our poor old eyes.

But it looks to me like it can't be done.

I guess I'm asking for the central portion of the page: the actual scanned document - to be blown up vertically so's it'll fill the available vertical space if I print in landscape.

But if I do that it would mean that everything would be out of kilter because I've changed the aspect ration.

So actually I'd need to zoom the whole thing until vertically it occupied the whole page.

Upon which it's be too long.

So then I'd have to scale it down again.

And I'd be back where I started.

So it beats me if it can be done.

But miracles are done every day in this modern world, with computers, and in the image manipulation world.

Would there be a way to do this?

Here's a sample page:

P.S. I have just noticed you can't open this by clicking on it. It is a pdf. Hopefully it downloads to you and you can see it on your own device?
