    Question, can't you select 'Edit Page' create a frame to enclose what you want to move and move it? I do it that way all the time.

    If you're having trouble making the frame, start it off the page by clicking your left mouse button and holding it down, move your mouse to the other end of what you want to select then release. This will put a frame around all items you want to move.

    I don't know if you still need help with this, but here's the answer you've been looking for, maybe. First, right click on your quick tool bar (the one at the top of the application, just below the file tabs) click on the "Customize Quick Tools" option. Go to the "Organize Page" option and click the dropdown arrow. Find & click on the "Extract Page" feature then click on the +upArrow to the right. Then save. This will put an 'Extract Page' button on your Quick Tools.

    then when you're ready to extract some pages, click the button. Your pages will display. They're larger than thumbnails so you see the pages easier. Then you can click on one or many pages easily.

    If you need to extract many pages in a row, click on the first page, hold down your shift button and click on the last page, then click the 'extract pages' button in the sub (organize) toolbar.

    If you have pages to extract that aren't adjacent hold down the control key and click the pages you want to extract, then click the 'extract pages' button in the sub (organize) toolbar.

    Hi, I'm not here to be argumentative, but I am a technical writer and used to be a form designer. If you need such accuracy why not invest in LiveCycle or Adobe Experience? LiveCycle is relatively inexpensive and converts the most lovely forms to pdf easily. I've made forms using Acrobat Pro, and they are nice, but very basic. Acrobat just doesn't have the features a really good form design software has, such as exact placement, complex subforms, complex calculations, expandable text fields and many others.

    Let me know if you're interested and I can send you a couple of the complex forms I've designed using LiveCycle.

    I like this idea, though I prefer to design buttons and links on my master pages of InDesign (where I usually create my documents) then convert to pdf.

    I'm having a similar issue. As a technical writer, I need all things to be ADA compliant. I need all of my page view links to Inherit Zoom. I have one document with over 50 links that I set individually to Inherit Zoom and saved the document. The next day I opened the doc and all of the links were set to custom. I reset each link back to Inherit Zoom, saved, closed then re-opened the file and all the zoom's were as they should be, but 2 hours later, they were once again set to custom.

    Developers - please fix this!
