    hey guys,

    i have a bunch of pdfs to print which each contain like 4 bars of a musical score. i can easily fit about 4 of these pdf docs onto one 8.5x11 page, but each pdf is a full page (including lots of blank white space). is there a way to print multiple pages as one page, but by removing the blank space and without reducing the size?

    If you open a PDF in Preview, you can use the Select tool to select a rectangle and then select Crop from the Tools menu. That way you can cut the whitespace from the page. If you then select to print multiple pages per sheet in the print dialog, you should be all set.
