Why add margin to PDF files
Here are a few common reasons why adding margins might become necessary:
- Improper margins due to several reasons like document conversion, printing errors, or formatting issues that arise during their creation
- When printing a PDF document, you may need to add margins to avoid content getting cut off during the printing process. Margins ensure that important information, such as headers, footers, or side annotations, remains visible and intact
- If you want to take notes directly on your PDFs, adding margins gives you ample space to write without covering or overlapping the original content. This ensures your annotations are clear and do not alter the document’s readability
- PDFs created from various sources may not have consistent or uniform margins. This lack of consistency can be distracting and reduce the professional appeal of the document. By adding margins, you can create a visually pleasing layout, aligning all the content uniformly
