    enlarge pdf music score

    Is there any way to enlarge a music score that is a pdf? I am attaching an image. It doesn't look that small on a computer monitor but on a printed page I cna't see the notes. The only other alternative I know of is copy it out by hand. But I have several of these to do. They aren't under copyright. I have tried a few pdf editors with no luck. I wasn't sure if this question should go under this forum or multimedia. Thank you,

    I opened the document in gimp and resized and save it as a .png. The resize option opened automatically and after the size was selected I used the import option displayed. The pdf opened in gimp to the selected size. You can also save the document as as a gimp .xcf and re-save as a pdf that will open n document viewer. Exporting the resized document should also work.

    A quicker way may be to insert the pdf as an image into a libreoffice writer page, when it will probably fill the page out to whatever margins you have set.

    You should also be able to simply use print preview from the pdf viewer used and set the page size and how it fits that way, though perhaps that depends on the pdf viewer and your printer; I can certainly do either on my Xubuntu 18.04 with an HP Envy 4520 printer.
