    Hi,

    I am trying to design the cover page of my book using MS word mac. I want to have a descriptive image into the main and I want it to fill the who width of the page when I make it into pdf. Every time I tried to convert it into pdf I found a little white space from the left and right. Any suggestions how to do that.

    THANKS! :confused:

    I am assuming you want to get rid of the white border.

    The easiest way is to open the PDF with the border in preview, then use the select tool to drag a box around the PDF without the white border (basically select only the area of the PDF that you want). Copy that selection (cmd-c) and then create a new document from the clipboard (cmd-n). The new document will have no borders, and you just need to make sure you re-save the new document as a PDF.

    Also this may be the wrong forum for this thread?

    If this is going into print get a real DTP application or hire a graphic designer.
