What do you mean by "arrange the contents of the page too"?
IIRC, Page Metrics specifies Media Box of the page. This means physical
geometry of the page.

See example:
I have done:
Edit page metrics
Left upper corner, x position (mm) set to 30
Right bottom corber, x position (mm) set to 200

Try to change revision to the older one and compare the difference.
Is this what you wanted?

I understood how to crop a single page, but how can I apply the settings to all the pages in the document? If there's no GUI to do it, could somebody post a simple script to do the job?

I think such a feature would be very useful since around the net there are a lot of papers with little text at the center of the document and absurd unchangeable margins around - I really hate them
