I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Would need to know more about the PDF to provide an answer. Please post one or two pages of it, making sure that it doesn't contain any private/sensitive info. Regards, Joe

how?

save as

and delete all but 2 pages??


or is there a better way
Joe Winograd, Fellow&MVEDeveloperCommented:
That's a fine way to do it. Or make a copy of it first, then work on the copy — delete pages in it and Save.

problem: every page has sensitive information so I can not share 2 pages

can you give a general answer to hide page numbers on top right
Joe Winograd, Fellow&MVEDeveloperCommented:
It's impossible to give a general answer. It depends on the nature of the PDF. Attached is an example of a PDF Normal file with a page number in the upper right. That can be deleted in Acrobat XI Pro as follows:

Tools
Edit Text & Images
Select the item
Delete

On the other hand, attached is a PDF Image file (a scanned document) with the same page number in the upper right, but it cannot be deleted with the same technique. If you try it, you'll get this:

cannot edit PDF image
But if your docs are PDF Normal with text (such as those created from Word), then try the method above with Acrobat XI Pro. Regards, Joe
