You can extract pages in Reader X, just not the same way you would do it in Acrobat.

This works providing there are no security restrictions against printing from the document.

You need to be able to print directly to PDF.

  1. Open your document in Reader
  2. Click on the Print button
  3. Choose Adobe PDF printer as the printer you want to use.
  4. Choose Current Page under Pages to Print, if you want to 'extract' the page that you are currently viewing OR
  5. Select Pages and enter the range of pages that you'd like to 'extract'
  6. Print and save the print job to wherever you'd like it to be saved
  7. Rejoice

This will work, but only if Adobe Acrobat is installed (since it provides the Adobe PDF printer). And, since you have Adobe Acrobat, you can use the far superior method of Document > Extract Pages...

I don't think discussion of Acrobat's competitors is likely to be tolerated in Adobe's forums, however. So the answer in this forum is, you use Acrobat.

Nope, the answer is use Acrobat or look for an alternative.

At least if you really want to help someone.
