It has to be possible but it doesnt seem to be anywhere where one would look to do this but how would I duplicate a page within a PDF with Professional?  I generally make a copy of the PDF, open both, then drag the pages over from one to the other that I want to make copies of.  This really sounds like the long way around doing something simple.  Is it possible to duplicate a page or spread?

There's a much easier way to do this.

Go to the Pages panel, select the page, hold down Ctrl and then drag it to

the spot next to it. When you release the mouse it will create a copy of

said page.

In the "document" menu you should be able to click on "extract" page.  This should make a copy of the page for your desktop. then you can go back to the document menu and insert the page as many times as you like.  I hope this helped!

That would probably work also but it still seems like its many extra steps that wouldnt be needed generally. Just seems like there would be a basic "duplicate page" option somewhere

One can create a 'template', using the menu or JavaScript, in Acrobat and then use JavaScript to 'spawn' a new page using the created 'template'.

I agree. It does seem like too many steps for such a simple task. Quite lame actually. I've run into this same problem. (the need for quick duplication of the exact same page.) It would be very useful for my daily tasks... but alas there is no such thing. That I'm aware of. Perhaps there is a plug-in available that I've not come across.

Any admin wanna chime in on this? Why isn't there a duplicate page option? (or have we just missed it?) Is there some .pdf security feature that it may compromise? I'd be grateful to know whether or not there is good reason to not have it other than it has not be developed.
