Chapters 13 and 15 covered editing content on PDF pages. Minor edits for text passages and images may be completed with the tools discussed in the earlier chapters. If you want to modify larger portions of a PDF document, then you'll want to know something about the tools Acrobat offers you for page editing. If you return to an authoring application and edit text, graphics, and layouts, you may want to update your PDF document according to the page edits made in other applications. Rather than recreate the entire PDF file, Acrobat enables you to selectively append, replace, delete, and extract pages in a PDF document.

This chapter covers the page-editing tools in Acrobat and many new features that can help you modify documents.
