Hi forum and Tracker Support Team, after a crash of PDF-XChange Editor, unfortunately no Autorecovery of the crashed document is offered -- although Autorecovery is activated, with a 5 minutes saving interval. Also, strangely, only one window crashed and not the entire Editor, i.e. another open Edit...

Re: Insert pages - issues with bookmarks SOLVED

Hi '4455,

for inserting existing external pages, I'd very much recommend to simply drag the pages from Windows Explorer between the target thumbnails in the Thumbnails Pane -- or even simpler, between the target bookmarks in the Bookmarks Pane.

This even works with Word documents!

Cheers
