Borderless PDF Presentation Printing on a Mac
If you are worried how to print a PDF presentation on a Mac without the white borders, then here we’ll show you the trick to make borderless presentations.
Printing a PDF presentation is something that many presenters do before sharing their presentations with colleagues, online or via a presentation sharing system instead of printing in a printer. Borderless presentations help toward creating better quality presentations that are shared online instead of providing a PDF that looks with a ugly margin. Removing the white space margins can also be helpful if you want to print the document in a printer that already have the white margin (most printers have this white margin by default).
Either if you are in Windows or Mac, you can change the Print options to make the presentation match your paper size. The trick here is to make the presentation aspect ratio to match your paper size.

Finally, click OK.
Make sure to choose the new saved Paper Size and select a proper orientation (portrait or landscape) to make the presentation fit the page.
