Hi Forumers,
how are you?
How is that period of Covid-19?
Personally is a disaster, no job, no income, nothing at all... worried? Yes, a lot. But We will survive!
Where I work, we decided to jump off the cloud. So new software, new way to work, and everything to learn again. That's cool!
So instead of Pitstop we are now running Callas pdftoolbox. I admit to be very impressed.
Powerful software quite logic and easy to use.
There is only a thing that is struggling me (a stupid one):
How to visualize the size of the trimbox of my pdf?
Boxes are displayed correctly but I cannot find any windows where the exact size is displayed.
Someone of you could be so kind to help me?
Thanks a lot!

Hello Gianni,

the only way to get the size of the TrimBox in pdfToolbox (currently) is to run a Check, then look up the needed info in the report. This is a frustrating way to work, but that's what you have.

Hi Puch,
thanks for your answer. Running a check is better than nothing. I was consuming my brain searching for a way to do it!
So, many many many many thanks for this precious help. I really appreciate it!

You do not need PitStop or Callas Toolbox, you will get the information about boxes rather quickly with the Crop-Tool in AcrobatPro too

(look at the screenshot attached, the tool last right in the Menue on top, just choose the box you want to know top left in the dialogue and then look below the preview...)
