I downloaded and installed Acrobat4, a free download [website removed by host]. After I open a multiple page pdf document and get the corressponding multiple thumbnails, how do I copy all at once the multiple thumbnails for later pasting them?
Thanks for the help in advance. Appreciate your time!

The simplest way to accomplish this may be to just save the document as a TIFF or JPeg. It will give you one graphic per page. To get the figures small, you could print the PDF to a new PDF with a smaller page and print to fit selected, then create the JPegs. This may not be what you want, but it is how I read your post.
@CTdave: You state: "PDF is not a format that supports content copy-paste such as can be done with a word processor file format." Nothing untrue about that statement but it is solely the initial point. Am looking for a fix not an explanation of the known problem. Thanks for the try!!! (.
@Bill@VT: will study!! A "JPEG" was mentioned by a seemingly well meaning nuance help person too.
Any more details you can suggest?
Well, you see, there isn't a "problem".
Certainly not an issue associated with PDF creation/consumption "agents" (Adober Reader, Acrobat, other software).
PDF is defined by ISO 32000-1.
Prior to becoming an ISO Standard PDF was defined by Adobe's PDF References.
This documentation makes it clear that PDF was not and is not a word processer like file format.
fwiw, ISO-32000-2 won't be changing that.
@CtDave. No offence but I have no idea what this means: "Well, you see, there isn't a "problem"". Are you talking about a problem you now do not have?
FYI, I can and have copied pdf pages with just writing (and writing with images) and then pasted them sucessfully to my LibreOffice processing program. Its the multiple pages all at once process that escapes me.
I really do not know what tour iso discussion is leadong to but thanks for the info and effort anyway!
All efforts Appreciated everyone, much Thanks Diligent
