I had pasted objects far away from my floor plan and later deleted them.

 

Now when I try to put this floor plan on a la set page, it bring in the whole area of the file,  large enough to contain 

where the deleted objects were.

 

is there a way I can reduce back down my drawing area size so that I can place is on my pages easily?

 

Thank you

I would start with zoom extent and see what's out there.  Good chance something wasn't deleted.  If you have what looks like a bunch of white space off your drawing...block erase everything that is in that white space to make sure everything is gone.  Sometimes you'll have something small like a line segment that you can't see that causes an issue like this

You can adjust the drawing size in Options/Workspace Limit

This would be Drawing Options. Project Options or System Options, under the File menu.
