In this post, it discusses how to really crop a PDF.

I am asking, for an already cropped PDF with the cropped information still being hidden, is it possible to recover them? So that when I open the recovered PDF, it SHOWs all the hidden information.

I know how to "see" the hidden information using "Remove Hidden Information".


Set the Cropbox to the Mediabox, and you have uncropped the document. This works as long as the document has just been cropped.

  • "has just been cropped" has to be the key. – Chen Stats Yu Dec 30 '15 at 1:39
