TIP 75: Extracting Content

Suppose you have a multipage document and you want to remove a part of it for another purpose, such as combining it with other information for another document. In this tip, I'll explain how to separate, or extract, a portion of a document.

Let's Have Some Order

You can readily extract several nonconsecutive pages from the same document. First, group them together. In the Pages pane's thumbnails view, click and drag the pages you want to extract until they are in sequence. Click the thumbnail of the first page you want to move to select it, and then drag it up or down to the appropriate location. A solid line appears above a thumbnail as you drag up or down. As the page is moved, a solid line shows where it will relocate if you release the mouse.

Once the content is extracted, return the original document to its initial order. Choose File > Revert to open the dialog. Click Revert to return to where you started before the extraction, with the pages in their original order.

For a document with only a few pages, reordering them is a quick and convenient way to assemble the pages for extraction. For a very large document, it would be simpler to extract groups of pages and then recombine them into one new document.
