Not with the free Adobe Reader, no. You could do it with Adobe Acrobat.
thanks; i had a hunch it would take an upgrade. it's not something i do or would do very often.
If you need to do that only once, you can download and install the trial version of Acrobat. It will be fully functional for one month.
thanks, Pat. i developed a "work-around" with my scanner for the time being.
