    The quickest way would be to drag these pages around in the Pages pane.

    That's the only way I know how, but it's not a very quick or easy method. So, there's no other way to do this?

    You could use pdftk to explode it into individual pages and then reorder it.

    I can't imagine any method that would be quicker or easier than re-arranding via the "Pages" pane, especially for such a small doent.

    Thanks, I wasn't aware of that program. But, yes I suppose you're right - manual drag and drop is the way to go here.

    Here a Java Script that will arrange pages reverse. You may execute it via JS-Console.

    for (i=this.numPages-1;i>=0;i--)
    this.movePage(i);

    Reinhard script works, but there is an even easier method:

    Print the doent using the distiller or PDF writer, and check the "reverse pages" checkbox in the print dialog box (right top). Problem solved...

    I tried the Java Script and it's quite possible I did something wrong as I know nothing about this, but the Java Script editor box popped up with "syntax error": missing (before formal parameters 0: (null) at line 1. I had clicked on Advanced>JavaScript>Doent JavaScripts and typed in exactly as Reinhard did.

    I sure liked Rogier's suggestion, and it did reverse the pages, but I had a few pages that were custom sized, and in doing this, it made them all uniform. Also, buttons are flattened to the artwork in the new file.

    The quickest and cleanest way to reverse the page order is as follows:
    1. Open the PDF file to be amended
    2. Click on FILE...PRINT..
    3. Check the REVERSE PAGES Box
    4. Select Acrobat Distiller as the Printer
    5. Click OK and save as a new Filename
    6. Open the new file and the page order will have been reversed
