Password protecting a doc

Hope someone can help because I am about to pull my hair out.  I scan a multi-page doc and save to my computer.  Looks fine on my screen - it’s normal size.  I go into pdf creator and password protect it and re-save it to my computer.  Then I open it to confirm the p.w. took and that everything looks good before sending it as an email attachment.  The first page looks fine, but the next 21 pages are tiny text boxes in the bottom left hand side of the page.  I have looked at every option/feature that I could in pdf creator and can’t figure out what needs to be adjusted so the document will be normal size for all 22 pages.  Help.


do you at any point print the document to the PDFCreator virtual printer from Adobe Reader?
If yes, please make sure the option “Choose Paper Source By PDF Page Size” is disabled.

best regards,
