    how to see PDF Page boxes sizes

    I know PitStop can show you that, but I'm looking for an alternative to it.

    I saw Apogee DocuBox Manager but figures it wont work without a sever running... And dose not seam to be compatible with the latest version of acrobat.

    I'm looking for a simple solution either a simple plugin or a way to see the page boxes dimensions no need to modify them.

    thanks !

    acrobat pro can do this without any extra tools!

    just check your preferences.

    It will show the boxes but not the sizes... or maybe I missed something ... or I was not clear on the actual purpose of seeing the boxes, I need to know the trim size.

    Thanks

    okay, was a little misunderstanding. acrobat can only show the boxes, not the size.

    but you may google for a plugin called joup. it is a tool for imposition but will display the trim box size of your pdf file. even the demo version can do this.

    and kodak geometry plugin is the equivalent to apogee docubox manager and is available for acrobat dc too. of course its free!

    If you select crop tool in Acrobat and double click you art you wil see the crop tool window.

    There you can select the box you wanna see the size.

    You can even change the size although it's a bit complicated. I would recommend Enfocus Pitstop for box's size changes.

    i use apogee. and have installed the docubox plug-in (and the others) at a clients place. It is working just fine without any connect to the server and the current version does support the latest acrobat.

    Regards

    Could you share the installer or the plug-in itself?

    Thanks
