I am using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro with Windows 7, and I want to replace certain pages in one PDF with certain pages from another PDF. The pages are replaced, but anything that was added with the typewriter is lost in the pages I'm replacing. In other words, it replaces the pages, but does not copy across the page numbers and a few other additions that I made with the typewriter. How does one ensure that all additions are carried across? I am desperate & would appreciate any help! Thanks.
Export Comments from the second PDF, then import Comments in the first PDF.
Oh, okay, thanks - that would explain what is happening. But surely there is a way to embed the markup so that it copies across? I could copy each page number across separately but that would defeat the object for me - then I may as well add all the page numbers individiually again, which will be very tedious. I would be surprised if there is not a way around this?

You can "flatten" the PDF, but Comments will be lost as "Comments" since they will be embedded in the layout.

Thanks a stack. I did try to flatten the PDF, which would be fine since it's not actually comments that I'm trying to embed, it's just the page numbers that I added to the PDF, which apparently is seen as markup. Flattening didn't work though, unless I'm doing it wrong (never used 'flattening' before - I went to 'Advanced' - 'Print Production' - 'Flattener Preview').
Sorry to everyone for this being a fantastically-obscure aspect of how the Pages Panel operates, but Bill and JR are a bit wrong. Some markup is copied, some is not, and there's a very easy way to keep the live markup when you're transferring pages. There's no need to flatten anything.
