Take a tour of Acrobat XI, compare its three editions, and get a fresh look at what you can do with Acrobat. This course demonstrates the basics of working with PDFs: how to create, combine, edit, export, and review documents. Author Claudia McCue also shows how PDFs integrate with Microsoft Office applications and introduces the basics of working with forms.
In this video, I'm going to show you how to delete blank pages or incorrect pages and then how to rearrange pages if they are in the wrong order. First, we're going to get rid of the blank pages. So page ii would make sense if this were printed book--it would be sort of an inside front cover--but it doesn't make sense in a PDF. So I select the page in the Page Thumbnails panel and click the Delete Pages icon. Acrobat says, "Are you sure?" because it's not going to give you an undo. Click OK because you feel sure, and then let's see if there are any more blank pages. Yes, there's another one.
So I select that and tell it to be deleted. But I have another problem here. This list of illustrations is falling after page 4, and I really need that in the front matter of the book. So all I have to do is select it in the list of thumbnails, hold down my mouse button, push up, and you see that blue insertion bar? I need to keep pushing, and here's where I want it to go. I want it to go before Page 1 and after this Page iii. So I wanted to be part of the front matter. So that's where my blue insertion bar is and when, I let go of my mouse, there we go and everything is in place.
So notice that you can do this. Even though you don't have the original application, you can make these modifications to a PDF, and this gives you great flexibility. So let's save this, because we are going to do one more thing to it in the next video. So just choose File > Save As, and let's make this Art_Book_Working_3, and then click Save.
