Problem with page resize

Post by kai_jh » Mon Jan 12, 2015 1:52 pm

I am experiencing a problem with the page resizing feature. Please see the sample PDF attached.
1. I choose Document | Resize Pages... from the menu
2. I want to resize the file to only see the left (Page 1). Thus I choose A4 Portrait. I figured out that I would here have to set Placement to Horizontal Offset 0 from Left, but I first forgot this and just left the standard setting 0 Center, thus please leave this as well.
3. Press OK

Now everything looks like the way I wanted it, I have the left side of the landscape page now as portrait. I save the document and everything is fine as well. If I reopen it with PDF XChange Editor though, I see that the real document was shifted and is not in place any more.

If I choose Horizontal Offset 0 from Left the problem is solved - I still believe though that it is not good to see wrong content that changes after re-opening the file.
