Resizing pdfs generated from Word docs

Postby LesCM19 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 6:48 pm

The story is, I have these huge tables which I created when I was happy to use them in Word & Excel docs (plus the Excel docs had calculations going on).

Now I am using Scribus to publish. Tables from Excel docs were saved as pdfs, in Inkscape I have been selecting table & resizing page to fit, then importing into Scribus.

Having trouble doing similar with pdfs from Word doc tables. Tables aren't selectable like Excel/pdfs. Is there a workaround or do I have to draw them up in Excel?

Can you share an example file?
