Are you under Windows or Linux? Here under Linux command "pdftops" or
"pdf2ps" could be used to convert pdf file to ps (I think gsview could
be used for the similar converting purpose under windows), and then you
could directly import the result ps files into scribus (File -> Import
-> eps/ps) and do editing there like cropping. The other way is to
import the result ps into inkscape and edit there because inkscape could
save to svg or ps which could be imported to Scribus.
