    Enlarging PDF in Windows 8


    Hi,

    I have a document in PDF format that I need to enlarge by a specific percentage. However, when clicking the + sign it doesn't give me an option to type in an exact amount; i.e. 105%.

    Is it possible to do this?

    Thanks

    I'm just using what's came with windows 8; I'm assuming it's a reader app?

    Will any free PDF software allow me to augment the image size?

    Give me a few minutes to check with Adobe Reader.
    I'll be back.

    I couldn't find a way with Adobe.

    But it is still better than the Microsoft reader.

    EDIT>>> See post #8 below.I found a way.

    Adobe Reader will allow you to set a custom zoom value. All that's required is for you to have the document saved on your computer.

    You need to use Dynamic Zoom to get a custom size:

    It's tricky though.
    Sometimes it works & sometimes not.
    Maybe I'm just too dumb to figure it out properly.
