How to Adjust the Page Alignment in Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro

by Alex Ramirez

Adobe Acrobat 9 can be used to view PDF documents, similar to Adobe Reader. Those who have Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro though, can actually edit many aspects of the document. The program considers aspects of the documents to be fields, which are primarily used to input text. Users can change the alignment of the page by selecting all the fields on a page. Text in the document will shift to alignment desired, which, depending on the page, could cause a page break in a place that it previously was not.

Open the document you would like to edit with Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.

Click anywhere on the PDF document to select it.

Press "Control" + A" to select all the fields in the document. If you would like to just edit the alignment of one page, drag your mouse from the top to the bottom of an entire page. All information on the page should be highlighted.

Right-click the highlighted area. A list of options will appear, including "Align."

Mouse over "Align" to display a new set of options: Left, Right, or Vertical.

Click on the desired options. The page alignment and the forms inside of it will change to the alignment selected.
