Cropping pages

Using xodo, it is possible to remove unwanted white space from documents in order to use the screen space more efficiently.
You can let Xodo automatically detect and remove white space, or you can manually crop the pages. Note that these changes only affect the reading experience in Xodo. If you want to save the document with the crop, please see how to save a permanently cropped copy of a file.
