    Hi, I was wondering if there's any pdf software that will allow me to zoom in on figures and/or save them as a new document. For example, a graph on a pdf file may only take up a small portion on a page but I want to blow it up and print it on an entire page. I need this for a poster presentation I have on Wed. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks! :D

    Also, if anyone has any ideas as to how to do this through PDF or Acrobat, that would be helpful also. If there really isn't any viable solution for Mac I would be happy to hear about Windows apps too. :]

    Well you can use the snapshot tool from adobe Tools - Select and zoom - Snapshot. Then you can paste into another application to make the changes you want. It might look very fuzzy as you are enlarging it so don't count on 100% quality by any means.

    Can't you crop it in Preview and then zoom in?

    Use the print dialog box

    When I want to print only a part of a PDF document I open it in Acrobat Professional or Adobe Reader 7, zoom in to see what I want, click "Print" and then click on the "Current View" button in the dialog box. This will print only what you see on the screen.
