    Shuffle Pages (03)

    Is it possible to reshuffle pages within a document? I would like to keep the formatting of the page intack as well.

    As an example I have 100 pages in a document and would like to take page 55 and move it to page 5. Page 5 would be moved to page 3.

    Thanks,
    John

    I've always used cut and paste for this. Very careful cut and paste (and some repairs after the fact) if I am moving pages among sections. I'm not aware of any built-in, page-oriented method to make it easier or safer.

    John, I too use cut and paste. If you already know the following, I apologize for wasting your time. (However, it may be useful to a user searching posts on this subject.)

    I find it is best if I do that while in View > Normal. That way I can see page breaks and section breaks, so I can include them in my cut as required.

    You can highlight these breaks to include them, by moving your cursor toward the left margin while on the break line.

    You may need to update fields if you have the page number in the header or footer.

    It might be possible to do this in Outline view if each page you want to move has its own heading and if these headings have a proper "Outline level" (Level 1 or Level 2 or ... or Level 9).
