    Posted: 07 Apr 2017 at 10:15am
Hi,
I have two huge PDFs. I want to print them. But before I do that, I would like to re-arrange pages in the next pattern: from 1-2-3-4, I would like it to be 1-3-2-4, then 5-6-7-8 to become 5-7-6-8, etc.

Is there a way to do this automatically, because both are over 1000 pages long? I don't have a clue how to edit PDFs, and it is extremely difficult to find how to do it automatically in the pattern I want on Google. 

Thanks in advance!

Possible with Adobe Acrobat and JavaScript.

I don't know anything about it, I only know what Java is. Is there some guide how to do that? Thanks for your reply :)

Acrobat uses JavaScript not the Java computer language.

Adobe make the Acrobat JavaScript documentation freely available.


Acrobat JavaScript API Reference

movePage

Pages are numbered using the zero base logic, so page number 1 I 0. It looks like you only need to move page3 after page 1.

this.movepPage({nPage:2, nAfter:0});
