pdf settings for margins, gutter, page size?

Question asked by tmiddleton on Jun 11, 2018

I was wondering if there were some more fine tuning options when generating a pdf. I currently have sheets that are generating a 23.80 x 15.40 in page size. I'm not sure the origin of why this sheet size, but I digress. I would like to print it on 11x17 which works okay for the most part. The issue I'm running into, however is that I would like to bind the schematic on the 11" side of an 11x17 sheet of paper. I'm not finding an easy way through Adobe's tools to add a "gutter" or margin without scaling the whole thing.

It would be nice to be able to add a gutter to even/odd pages too such that two-sided printing would give a larger margin on the left on odd pages and right of the even pages.

One option I can think to do is to reduce the 17in (23.8in) by 1 in and scale to the 17in giving 1/2in on both sides.

What I'm looking for:

  1. Is there a way to make the pdf scale to a sheetsize?
  2. Can a gutter edge or margin be added to the pdf? Able to alternate L/R for duplex printing?
