Actions can do so much! Let’s consider how to automatically change document page orders.
Here’s a scenario: You spend time scanning and capturing a document in Acrobat. When you start editing you realize the scan order is totally backward. Well, that’s no problem if your document is four or even ten pages long, but what if it’s 100 pages? Or more?
Actions to the rescue! Here’s what you do:
First go to the acrobatusers.com Actions Exchange.
Click the Acrobat X radio button, and scroll down the page to the Reverse Page Order action.
Click Download to download a copy of the file.
If you prefer, you can click this link to download a copy of the action directly from this post. (The .sequ Action file is contained within a .zip file to play nice with browsers).
