If the size you want is not available in the drop down menu, you can easily add your page size by clicking the Add button to the right of the drop down menu. Enter a name for your new page size and enter the width and height. Be sure to select inches, millimeters, or points (pixels). Inches is what I've picked.

If the size you want is not available in the drop down menu, you can easily add your page size by clicking the Add button to the right of the drop down menu.

Step 4)

IMPORTANTMake sure to select “Ask to replace existing PDF file” before you hit Print! If you do not select this option, your new resized PDF willsave over your original PDF. Click ok.

Now that you have picked your new page size, there is one more quick step before printing your new PDF! In the Page Sizing & Handling section, ensure that Fit is selected. Otherwise, parts of your printable may be cut off. Now you are ready to click print!

Step 6)

The last thing to do is to name your new resized printable! I typically just add the size to the end of the file name.  For example the Small Business Planner would now be named Small-Business-Planner_JournalstoFreedom6x9
