I have about 20 4-page PDFs that I want to add the same layers to. It seems like I should be able to use the Action Wizard import layer tool, but I can't specify which page I'd like the layers applied to in the Specify Settings dialogue. Am I missing something? Is there a work-around?
I am not sure the layers are page-specific but I think a layer applies to the whole document.
Please always include in your query the version of Acrobat and the operating system you are using.

You can use an application like https://www.screentogif.com/ to insert animated screenshots.
Is it possible to create the layers in your source (original) document? Please describe your production process.

Layers are page specific.
I ended up getting help from Adobe Customer Support, who counseled me to use Watermarks. Using Watermarks allowed me to specify the page or page range for each image I wanted to add, apply it to all the relevant pages in multiple documents with a single command, and specify the exact location of the image on each page. I hope this helps someone else in the future!
Hi. Can you please explain how to add the page range?
When I use watermarks for a 1000 page document (and load another very similar pdf with the same number of pages) the popup window doesn't allow to insert the range (i.e. "1-1000") and picks only the first page to superimpose to all the pages.
You can only select a page range in the target document, not in the one you're using as the watermark.
If you want to apply a different page from the watermark document to each page of the target document you would need to use a script.
