[Athen] [EXT]: Re: Unable to extract a PDF

Hi Susan,

When I select the pages and right click I get a message that says “Please enter a valid page number.” I remember that before, when I right click, there used to be a page label option where I could take the letters out, but I am not given that option with this particular PDF. I am going to try Neal Sorensen’s approach and see if that works.

Are you selecting the pages you want to extract, then right-clicking and choose extract? That SHOULD work (and works for me even when the pages are numbered weirdly).

Subject: [Athen] Unable to extract a PDF

Hi wise ones,

I received a PDF for “New Perspectives Microsoft office 365 and excel 2019” and the PDF is set up in sections where the page numbers begin with a letter (EX 1-1, EX 1-2, etc), my Adobe Acrobat DC Pro will not extract because of the letters that begin the pages instead of numbers. Is there a work around for this?

Thanks – as always.
