Crop Pages Node

The Crop Pages node can adjust the crop box, bleed box, trim box, and art box on PDF documents. Documents may be cropped using the cropping dialog or the cropping tool. Units can be specified in inches, points, centimeters or millimeters. Cropping can be applied to a single page, a range of pages, or all pages.
