Thereby, it is not uncommon that all or an unknown number of those links have a certain page zoom factor assigned to them, like for example 78% zoom. However, usually it i...

Re: Thumb side panel : how to select only odd or even pages? SOLVED

Adjust the width of the Thumbnails pane to show two thumbnails side by side.

Then you can drag-select either of the two rows of thumbnails by mouse.

Re: Wishlist - Braces Comment Tool

You can even copy and paste Auto-Forms etc. from e.g. Word or Powerpoint as vector graphics. Of course, once they're pasted to your PDF they are static and not smartshape-ish anymore, but still this can be pretty convenient.

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!
