Page Extraction and Page Deletion Errors
I use Adobe in construction to review the plans in pdf format. Many times when I need to extract the sheet that our scope of work falls under an error comes us saying please enter a valid page range. Instead of simply being able to extract the page I have to delete all the extra pages I don't need. This is time consuming and does not always work. There are times when having to take this route Adobe says some pages were not removed and I have to save, close Adobe, then open the doc again to be able to remove the pages.
This is all very time consuming. When trying to review multiple projects throughout the day it becomes a headache trying to work around bugs in the system.
With the latest release of Acrobat on 3rd Nov, 2020, this issue has been addressed.
If your product is not already updated, you can manually do so from within the product. Click on the menu Help-> Check for updates.
Thanks for reporting this issue.
We have forwarded this to engineering team to look into it.

Page Extraction fails when Page labels have alpha numeric characters.
Request: Enumerate the Page Labels and allow for selecting the specific labels or range there of on the extract screen.
Temp Work Around:
The below works but is time consuming, specially when you are working with multiple files /Day.
1. Select All the Pages (Ctrl +A) in Windows
2. Right click one one of the pages and select Page Labels
3. Under Numbering section, select the Style desired 1,2,3, ...
4. Empty the Prefix field
5. Verify the Start value is desired i.e. 1
6. Click Ok
7. Pages are now, re-labeled with supported labels and desired pages can be selected and extracted.
