Zooming/Enlarging text content of PDF file without editing using Foxit PDF Reader

This post follows on the zooming text content in PDF related part in my recent post: http://ravisiyer.blogspot.com/2018/06/good-quality-of-printing-and-binding-in.html.

Steps to Zoom PDF text content to particular percentage using free Foxit PDF Reader:

1. Open original PDF in Foxit PDF Reader.
2. Choose File->Print.
3. For 'Microsoft Print to PDF' (Default Printer in my PC setup) choose Properties dialog
   3a. In Properties choose Advanced, and in that dialog change Paper Size to A5. Press OK.
   3b. Press OK to close Properties dialog.
4. Now in Preview group of Print main dialog, Document will show 5.8 x 8.3 and Paper will also show 5.8 x 8.3.
5. Click Scale in Print Handling group of Print main dialog. Set custom scale to desired zoom, e.g. 108%
6. Click OK. This will result in Save Print Output As dialog where one can specify a new file name for the Zoomed text content PDF file.

Here's the link to the iami1 blog book PDF document without zoom: https://iami1.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/20180426-bw-a5-who-am-i-i-am-i-n-god-n-science.pdf.

And here's a link to a new PDF document having 108% Zoom of text content of above PDF: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_IFxns2rrQbSQXBzjPSfbhdZpaLp5tFR.

The two pics below show a comparison of print preview pic (at 100% size) of same page of both the above documents. This should be comparable to actual printout of these pages on a printer (without zooming at print command time).

[To open pic in higher resolution, right-click on pic followed by open in new tab/window. In new tab/window you may have to click on pic to zoom in.]
