Moving Pages Within PDF Documents with AutoPageX Plug-in
The AutoPageX plug-in "Move Pages" tool can be used to quickly move pages within a PDF document. It is possible to move pages manually using basic Acrobat functionality provided by “Page Thumbnails” pane. However, it becomes tedious if many pages need to be moved. “Move Pages” tools provides a way to perform this operation without performing any manual page selection. In this tutorial, we will demonstrate how to use this tool by moving a range of pages to another part of a sample PDF document. The goal is to place the first three pages after the last page of the document - 12345 = 45123:
