How To Copy A Page Between Two .PDFs Using Thumbnails

I have received more than one inquiry asking me the easiest way to copy a page from one .pdf to another.  I am happy to tell you that it is a lot easier than you probably imagined.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. Open both of your .pdfs and display them side by side, by clicking Window | Tile | Vertically.
  2. Open Page Thumbnails for both PDFs by clicking Page Thumbnails in the left navigation pane.
  3. Drag the page thumbnail into the Page Thumbnail panel of your target .pdf.
  4. The page is then copied into your document and the pages are renumbered for you!

It doesn’t get much easier than that!
