page order problem - reversed

Post by qhal » Mon Jan 09, 2012 9:15 am

Can somebody tell me how the order of pages in a pdf can be reversed.

My scanner/copier has fed the pages in reverse order eg page 1 is #82, page 82 of pdf is the front page

only found out after I rebound the manual in its spiral binding thing.

Hi,

If you are printing to paper - you can reverse the pages by selecting the option outlined in the attached image - or you could 'reprint' to PDF the scanned file with this option checked to create a new file in the correct order if you have one of our PDF-XChange Drivers.

Hope that helps

One more trick: open the JS console in the viewer (Ctrl+J), and run the following script:

Code: Select all

for (i = this.numPages - 1; i >= 0; i--) this.movePage(i);

Hi Tim,

Yes reordering pages is a Viewer/Editor feature requiring a license or you will get the "click to buy" circles in the corners of the pages.

Regards,
Stefan

I bought the editor. I used it to delete pages which did not (as in the past) result in the watermark being shown. However, when I go to save a file after being reordered, I see that the pages are marked with the watermark. I have contacted support.

Hi Tim,

Just tested - and executing the page reversing script in the Editor at my end did NOT result in "click to buy" stamps in a properly registered copy of the Editor.
So the problem is most likely an incomplete registration at your end. Hopefully that's been resolved with e-mails already!

Cheers,
Stefan
