Moving PDF Pages
This tutorial shows how to move pages within a PDF document using theAutoBookmark™ plug-in for the Adobe® Acrobat®. Select page(s) to move and specify where to move selected page(s). Use keywords to specify a page(s) by referencing bookmarks, named destinations and page labels.
You need a copy of the Adobe® Acrobat® along with the AutoBookmark™ plug-in installed on your computer in order to use this tutorial. You can download trial versions of both the Adobe® Acrobat® and the AutoBookmark™ plug-in.
Step 1 - Open A PDF File
Start the Adobe® Acrobat® application and open a PDF file that need to be processed using "File > Open…" menu.
Step 2 - Open The "Move Pages" Dialog
Select "Plug-Ins > Pages > Move Pages…" to open the "Move Pages" dialog.
Step 3 - Specify Pages To Move And Destination
Specify page or page range to move. Select where to move specified page(s). Click "OK" to move page(s).
The AutoBookmark™ allows using multiple ways to define a processing page range. The simplest way is to use physical page numbers to specify a page range. The advanced methods include using bookmarks, named destinations and page labels. Use the following keywords:
  • "b:BookmarkName" to specify a bookmark that should be used as a page in the current document. Only bookmarks that point to a page in current PDF document can be used ("Go to a page view in the current document" action). For example: "b:Chapter 1" refers to a page pointed by a bookmark that has "Chapter 1" as a title.
  • "d:NamedDestination" to specify a page by referencing a named destination. For example, "d:Chapter 1".
  • "l:PageLabel" to specify a page by using its page label. For example: l:A-111. Page labels can be assigned by using the "Thumbnails" navigation panel.
  • "Last" to refer to a last page of the document.
  • "-1" to specify a page as offset from the last page in the document. For example, "-1" corresponds to the last page in the document and etc.
Step 4 - Examine The Results
In the example the plug-in has moved first page after the last page. It is possible to move page ranges or just individual pages.
In the example below the page was moved by refering to it via bookmark "Chapter 2":
