MAC OSX 10.7.5
Acrobat XI Pro
In adobe Acrobat XI for Mac, how do I drag pages from the Pages Thumbnail sidebar into finder and make a new PDF?
In windows I can simply select the pages, drag and drop them into Explorer and it creates a completely new PDF with the pages I dragged. I've tried everything on my Mac and I can't get it to extract this way.
It's extremely slow and frustrating having to manually right click extract, select the pages, open it in a new adobe window, then have to save the file through the menu.
On windows I just select the page, drag to the folder, click , and rename.
It doesn't work for me in Acrobat XI on a Mac with OS X 10.8.3. It shows a + sign as I move over the Finder, but it creates nothing. I suspect it's a bug, and you should create a bug report:
Ya, I am having the exact same problem with Acrobat XI, I can't drag and drop my pages. I use this option all the time and it's easy for people in the office to remember! I hope they fix it soon
I found your post when I was having this problem in Acrobat Pro XI on Windows 7. Then I switched from continuous- to single-page display. For some reason, it looks like dragging a page in continuous-page display moves the visible area of the page, but in single-page display, it moves the page. When page display is continuous, my cursor is a hand; when it's single-page, the cursor is an arrow. Also, if you are looking at a page other than the one you want to move (so the viewable area is on a different page in the Page Thumbnails), drag and drop works in either display mode.
When page display is continuous, my cursor is a hand; when it's single-page, the cursor is an arrow.
This got me thinking, above the "page thumbnails" pane, there is an icon for an arrow with text and an icon for a hand. Click the hand and then you can drag and drop.
