I am really annoyed on how bad Adobe is failing to test their products before releasing them.

I can't delete a page from Acrobat Pro DC.

I am very familiar with how to delete and extract pages and THESE OPTIONS NO LONGER WORK!

I have selected the page, click the trash bin and the first pop-up with: "Are you sure you want to delete the page from the document?"

I click OK, then this pop-up appears: "One or more pages are in use and could not be deleted."

I also when through the prompts for extraction and the other methods for deleting and again, these functions do not work.

What the hell?!?!?!

Not cool Adobe. Really not a fan of all the things you have changed across the Adobe CC either. You are making it extremely difficult to work in these programs. Keep the defaults as is! Let us choose these annoying new features if we want to!

Hi cm-designs,

Please go to File > Properties and show a screen shot of your Security tab so we can diagnose this better.

Also, is it all files or only this one?

This is, by the way, a user-to-user forum.

Hi Jane-e,

I got annoyed and deleted and reinstalled Acrobat. I was going to install a previous version, but my Adobe account doesn't keep previous versions of Acrobat.

I reinstalled Acrobat Pro DC 2019 and now, everything works.

In the future, I will check the security settings to make sure nothing is blocking that action.

Hi cm-designs,

Sometimes it’s the software; sometimes it’s the file, but I’m glad it’s working now!
