TIP 76: Replacing Pages

Say you have a PDF document and realize you need to do some edits that are simpler to make in the source program, such as rewriting a block of text on a page or some other non-Acrobat work. After you make your changes and convert the document to PDF, you can use the Replace Pages dialog to substitute the new page in your original PDF document.

Delete and Insert or Replace?

What's the difference? It depends on what else is on the page.

For example, you may have a page with a large number of comments, links, or form fields on it. If you merely inserted an edited version of the page and deleted the one you want to remove, you'd lose all your comments and links. When you use the Replace command, Acrobat replaces the underlying page, keeping the overlying content (such as comments, links, or form fields) untouched.
