how to cut a large document (tabloid to letter)

I have a pdf document formatted to print on a tabloid size paper, two sides. It's like a little flyer of 4 pages, after you fold the tabloid-size paper in half. I would like for it to print on letter size paper, 4 pages, to be able to print easier for my clients that download it. The people that download it will not have much experience, and it needs to be easy to be able to print.

I have the original in Adobe inDesign as well. Maybe I can somehow export it right from there.

Are you using a Mac or a PC? If you're on a Mac you can open the PDF in Preview and choose "Save as PDF" -> choose the paper size you want and scale it to fit -> save the file and you'll have a 8.5X11 page.

If on the PC, you should be able to open the document in Acrobat and print a new PDF scaled down to 8.5x11

If you can't do that on the PC or if Acrobat you can open the PDF in Photoshop -> go to the "Image" menu -> change the size in inches to the size you need -> file -> save as -> choose Photoshop PDF

Hi. Thanks. I don't want to scale it down, because then the text is too small to read. I need to actually cut it in half.
