trim pdf file to fit content

Hi, All

In most case, the pdf output page size is something like a4, a3. But when I want to include pdf in my latex work. I want the page size of pdf file to be trimmed. So the size just fit the content. Do you have any suggestion about how to do this?

Setting pdf output page size dependent on content size? Can we do this?

As far as I remember, on Windows, acrobat has a option let you trim the pdf to fit. Do we have the same function?

Are you talking about setting page margins? I'm confused about your question.

Inkscape can do this for you: <Ctrl-Shift-D> to get the document properties, then perform "Resize page to content" action.
