Thanks for that explanation.
I allwaus wondered what were all these boxes.
I pasted your mail in the wiki :
>>> Using 1.5.0 latest version when I set a page up as
>>> 6.69 inch x 9.61 plus bleeds of .125 inch on
>>> three sides the resultant pdf should be 6.815
>>> inches by 9.94 inches. but when I view the
>>> resulting pdf in okular I get 6.69 x 9.61 inches.
>>> The KDE Document Viewer give the same results.
>>> What is the actual physical size of the pdf?
> An EPS has only a single BoundingBox but a PDF contains a MediaBox, CropBox, BleedBox, TrimBox and ArtBox.
> For a description, see http://www.prepressure.com/pdf/basics/page-boxes
> For an advertisement, ArtBox is the content of the ad; TrimBox is the size that an application like Scribus should use to place the ad; BleedBox is the size that applications like Scribus should clip to; CropBox is the size for proofing the ad for viewers but is not supposed to be used by applications like Scribus; MediaBox is for complete pages including items that will be physically trimmed from the final product like crop marks, registration marks, slugs, etc.
> Some viewers like "gv" have an option to let you override the displayed area.
> The poppler package has the capability also, for example, pdftops crops to the CropBox by default but has a -nocrop option to use the MediaBox instead.
> On Linux, you can check the values with pdfinfo in the poppler package with the -box option.
> $ pdfinfo -box 20185846-crop.pdf
