    Cool Word 2010 question

    Need a quick and easy way to copy a page out of a large document, or even better how to copy out several different pages out of one document making a new document with the extracted pages...

    Any suggestions?

    Flighty,

    Welcome to the lounge as a new poster!

    You can select an entire page, copy and paste as follows:

    1. Click anywhere in the page.
    2. Press the F5 Key.
    3. In the Enter page number: box type \page.
    4. Click the Go To button or hit Enter.
    5. Press Ctrl+C to copy.
    6. Switch to new document.
    7. Locate the cursor where you want to insert the page.
    8. Press Ctrl+V.
    9. Repeat as necessary.

    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    In addition to RGs suggestion, you can select multiple contiguous pages by clicking on the start of the text you want to copy, scroll to the end of the text you want to copy, hold down the shift key and click at the end of text.

    Press Ctrl+c to copy, ctrl + v to paste in the new document.

    Thanks!

    I will give it a try.... I also found that I can
    a) save the doc to a seperate file
    b) delete unwanted pages/sections through the navigation pane
    c) easily delete other unwants thru opening the new doc > selecting text and deleting

    Just wish there was a function to copy page or extract page as seperate file such as one finds in Adobe.

    But Super I will definitely give your method a try as it seems interesting... never knew about F5 LOL

    Have a sunny day all!

    Old person Geek now going back to creating havoc in Word which I must say is far better today than when it first was launched....

    You could always do just that! In Word 2007-2010, click file, Save As. Under "Save as Type, choose PDF. Under Options you can choose 1 page, a selection, or several pages.

    Remember that for Word, a page is a fleeting and coincidental thing, dependent upon the printer selection and so on. If you look at the Word object model, page has essentially no place in it. PDFs by contrast are page-oriented.
