Right-click on the image using the Edit tool : Edit using : Photoshop/Paint/Etc.

Then you can save the image and import it in another page.

Hello @jaspert47233501,

 

you can not drag a text box from one page to another... you'll have to copy it from page then you can paste it to another one.

 

Regards,

Mike

The problem with cut / paste (if your moving an object that's in image format) is that when you copy Acrobat reduces the resolution by a substantial amount so that the object is blurry when pasting into the next page.  Note that I cannot simply newly import the image onto a different page if I only have the image in the PDF to begin with.  Any solution?

I'm in the same boat. This is so annoying. Why not just be able to drag???

Because PDF pages are completely separate objects from one another. Therefore, editing the PDF is done at the page level. In order for an object to be moved from one page to another it's not just a question of changing some small parameter in it, both pages have to be re-written to accomplish it.

The 'correct answer' to this question is not correct.  The question asks about moving a text box, not an image.  The question as it reads has not been answered.

The correct answer is it's impossible to drag any objects from one page to another. You have to cut and paste them.

It's the same, they are "graphic objects", there is no difference.
