    In windows I was able to resize pdfs by %'s, for example if a PDF took up two pages I could select 75% and it would reduce the size so that all the content got smaller and it fit on a single page. I messed around with previews and searched mroogle and I couldn't find anything. Do I need to purchased Adobe Acrobat?

    Fit to page is zooming… or do you mean editing the page sizes (as in the size of the paper)?

    I think the OP means when there is a multi-page document. Resizing the document fonts etc.

    Sometimes there's a 2 page PDF with just a little bit of text on the second page and when you resize the font smaller the text on the second page should move to the first page.

    Not sure if Preview does that.

    I don't think you can do that either; try downloading Adobe Reader for Mac before you buy Acrobat.

    I think that you are talking about N-up printing. Under the Layout select of the File/Print dialog box is a selection for Pages per sheet. You may print up to 16 pages on each sheet. This is a global feature and not exclusive to any particular application or file type.
