Overview of this book

Adobe Acrobat can help you solve a wide variety of problems that crop up when you work with PDF documents on a daily basis. The most common file type for business and communication, this compact portable document format is widely used to collect as well as present information, as well as being equipped with many lesser-known features that can keep your content secure while making it easy to share. From archive features that will keep your documents available for years to come to features related to accessibility, organizing, annotating, editing, and whatever else you use PDFs for, Acrobat has the answer if you know where to look. Designed for professionals who likely already use Adobe Acrobat Pro, this guide introduces many ideas, features, and online services, sorted and organized for you to easily find the topics relevant to your work and requirements. You can jump to any chapter without sifting through prior pages to explore the tools and functions explained through step-by-step instructions and examples. The information in some chapters may build on existing knowledge, but you are not expected to have an advanced level of prior experience. By the end of this book, you’ll have gained a solid understanding of the many capabilities of PDFs and how Acrobat makes it possible to work in a way that you will never miss good old ink and paper.

Some publications are very long, and their sections may be completed by different authors. Each part may be exported to PDF independently and they all may need to be combined into one file in Acrobat. Some pages may need to be replaced with updated content. None of these edits are possible in paper documents, but PDF gives us so much more flexibility.

Organizing the order of document pages may be done in the Pages pane or using the Organize Pages tool. We will use the Pages pane, where the Options menu will be our starting point for edits.

Pages navigation pane and options

First, if it is not opened already, we will open the Pages navigation pane. Follow these steps:

  2. When you see the icons for available panes, click the Pages icon to open the Pages pane with numbered page thumbnails appearing in the column, as seen in the following screenshot...
