    Enlarging and Attaching pdfs (2003)

    I have several pdf files that are less than the size of a normal sheet of paper (8 1/2 x 11). What I would like to do is "re-size" them to fill the complete sheet of paper, and then attach them to a word document as an appendix.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    Do you have Adobe Acrobat? If you print to Adobe Distiller you can specify the size of the target file, I think.

    I'm not sure about the last step: you want to attach the PDF as an embedded object, for users to double-click and open in Adobe Reader? Or you want to insert the contents of the PDF as pages in your document (e.g., giant images)?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by DaveA on 09-Oct-08 09:02. )</P>I think the best thing to do is rescan the book and the scans need to be save as separate images. Then you can do what you want.

    Edit. Remember to use a high enough res so that you can have a larger image.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
