    Hi folks,

    I am putting together a 300 page document. At the moment it is made up of a large main body. Unfortunately I have to insert section pages inbetween areas in this main body. Now yes I know I could use section breaks to do this, but quite honestly it is incredibly painful and I can never get it to work 100%, and some section headings have borders and then they disapear or the whole doc gets them.

    Is there a way of arranging pages much like you can in powerpoint, like as in click and drag??

    I have access to Acrobat 6 if it has an option to do this?

    Thanks for the help

    You can't move pages. A page in a document is not a discrete object like a slide in Powerpoint but you can move paragraphs in Outline View - it rather depends on the arrangement of your document whether it will help you in this case - I can't really tell from what you've posted.

    Hmmm that's nice Dreamboat, it certainly helped in areas.

    The main problem surrounded page borders and headers. Each section had a different one.

    In the end I deleted all borders and headers and inserted them manually into each page. Painful, but easy. Section breaks give me a headache and never seem to work... well, at least for me they't don't!
