Manipulating pages

If you look at the first page of the presentation (page 1 of 13), you’ll notice that the first page, the Table of Contents page, is rather plain. To make the presentation more attractive, you’ll add a cover page, which you’ll then rotate to match the other pages in the presentation.

Inserting a page from another file

You’ll start by inserting the cover page.

  1. Open Organize Pages in the Tools pane.
  2. Click Insert in the Organize Pages toolbar, and then choose From File.
  3. Navigate to the Lesson04 folder, and select Conference Guide Cover.pdf. Click Open or Select.
  4. In the Insert Pages dialog box, choose Before from the Location menu, and select First in the Page area. Then click OK. You want to insert this PDF file before any of the pages in your document.

    The cover document appears as page 1 in the Conference Guide_revised.pdf document.

  5. Choose File > Save to save your work.

Rotating a page

The cover page is now in the conference document, but it has the wrong orientation. You’ll rotate the new page to match the rest of the document.

  1. Select the thumbnail for the cover. Two rotation icons and a delete icon appear superimposed on the thumbnail.
  2. Click the Rotate Counterclockwise icon.

    Acrobat rotates the page so that it matches the rest of the document. Only the selected page was rotated.

Deleting a page

The last page in the document doesn’t quite fit with the others, and the conference committee has decided to distribute it separately. You’ll delete it from the document.

  1. Select the thumbnail for the last page in the document (page 14).
  2. Click the delete icon.
  3. Click OK to confirm that you want to delete the page.

    The page is deleted from the Conference Guide_revised.pdf file.

  4. Close the Organize Pages toolbar to return to the main document view.

  5. Choose File > Save to save your work.
