Deleting or Moving Pages

When you no longer need a page, you can delete it from your document using the Pages panel. You can use the Delete Page or Delete Spread button on the panel or the same command on the Options menu. Moving and arranging pages is a common part of working with multiple page documents. You can simply drag pages in the Pages panel or use the Move Page command on the Options menu. When you drag pages, the cursor indicates new page location. With the Move Page command, you can move pages within the current document or to another open document. When you move the pages, objects in the slug and bleed areas are also moved (New!). Page numbers in the slug area display a number rather than the pasteboard index entry (New!).
