How to cut the lines of a pdf file

  1. Hi to all,

    I have a PDF file (FreeBSD Handbook). I want to print it in paper (A4 size) and read it because reading it from screen hurts my eyes. My problem is that the lines are very tiny and long. If I print the pages in A4 size the lines/words will not be readable. If you look at the picture below you find out my problem. The solution in my mind is to somehow cut the lines and then print the lines in a bigger size. This way, the context will fit into the size of A4 paper and also readable. Is anyone aware of a tool or way to do that solution?
    PS: I don't want to cut the pages, I want to cut the lines. for example this book is in my "ibook" on my iPhone and it exactly has did what I'm talking about.

    Thanks.

    You need to get a tool to export the text and then format it in a word processing program.

    SOME pdf readers will allow you to SELECT the text, COPY and then past as required :)
