Hello.

I use Acrobat inside an application i wrote. Everything works fine without one thing. Moving Pages. ON the Pages tab of Acrobat (the thumbs) I cant drag to move pages.
I can do it if I fire upp acrobat it self but inside my app this can't be done.
I can also se that righclick dont give the "delete " option to delete a page. I can delete it by pressing delete button though.

Can someone tell me how to get the posibility to move the page by draging a thumb?

This may be a limitation of the external view (I assume that you are using AV_DOC_VIEW or AV_EXTERNAL_VIEW to display the document in your application, you would not get the thumbnail pane with AV_PAGE_VIEW). Acrobat gives you the same interface that you would have in a web browser, and there are a number of limitations in regards to what you can do in an external document. I just compiled the ActiveView sample that comes with the SDK, which uses the same interface, and I also cannot drag pages, and the menu in the Pages pane is rather limited.
I don't think that Adobe documents the limitations of the external view mode anywhere.

The only way to get a working drag&drop feature is probably to use AV_PAGE_VIEW and implement the thumbnail pane yourself.
