With Page Thumbnails panel open, I highlight and press DEL or right-click > Delete Pages, and I get:
"One or more pages are in use and could not be deleted."
They're not in use. I can somtimes close the PDF and reopen, and then delete the pages. But not always.
What's going on here; how do I get around this?
I use this feature once a month to extract / delete some 200 pages from an 800 page file. I found the release notes for 10.1.4 stated that this issue was fixed. I updated my Acrobat to the 10.1.4 release and i was still having the problem. I finally fixed it by disabling the Win XP compatability feature that i had enabled in the properties of the Acrobat executable. I had enabled this feature a couple of months ago as a fix to this specific problem, now it's not necessary.
Environ: Win 7 32-bit and Acrobat X, 10.1.4.
Hope this helps!
@ ECT Doreen - thanks for the response but I'm not running Acrobat in any compatability mode. The option is not even "checked" in the executable's properties.
Other threads highlighting this issue. None resulting in a solution.
Unfortunately, no. I can't post the PDFs in question.
So it could be the file itself, you say. Interesting. I wouldn't be surprised. These particular PDFs are rather old, and comprised of pages from various, other older PDFs - about 44 pages. There are some "problem pages" in the mix.
