Move or copy a page
You can use page thumbnails to copy or move pages within a document and between documents.
When you drag a page thumbnail in a Pages panel, a bar appears near other thumbnails, indicating the position in
which it will appear in the PDF. This bar appears at the bottom or top when the thumbnails are in a single column,
or to the left or right if more than one column of thumbnails is displayed.
Tagged bookmarks affect the order that reading devices follow, such as devices for the visually impaired. Tagged
bookmarks do not change the sequence of pages in a PDF.

Move or copy a page within a PDF, using page thumbnails
1 Click the Pages button to open the Pages panel, and select one or more page thumbnails.
2 Do one of the following:
• To move a page, drag the page number box of the corresponding page thumbnail or the page thumbnail itself to
the new location. A bar appears to show the new position of the page thumbnail. The pages are renumbered.
• To copy a page, Ctrl-drag/Option-drag the page thumbnail to a second location.
Move or copy a page between two PDFs, using page thumbnails
1 Open both PDFs, and display them side by side.
2 Open the Pages panels for both PDFs, and do one of the following:
• To copy a page, drag the page thumbnail into the Pages panel of the target PDF. The page is copied into the
document, and the pages are renumbered.
• To remove a page from one PDF and insert it into another PDF, select the page thumbnail and Ctrl-drag/Option
drag it into the Pages panel of the target PDF. The page is inserted into the target document and deleted from the
source document. The pages are renumbered.
Delete or replace a page
You can replace an entire PDF page with another PDF page. Only the text and images on the original page are
replaced. Any interactive elements associated with the original page, such as links and bookmarks, are not affected.
Likewise, bookmarks and links that may have been previously associated with the replacement page do not carry
over. Comments, however, are carried over and are combined with any existing comments in the document.
