is it possible to bring object to front/back? By mistake I've deleted an image laying under some text and other images from document and now I'm not able to place it back without covering every other objects 😞
Is there any solution for this? Undo also doesn't work...
Thank you for any help,
That exact feature is not available in Acrobat X, but you could import the missing image as a layer or page background, placing it behind the page content.
Yes, there is a solution. Try this:
Note: This will move the content back/front if that is not merged/flattened to the PDF.
This should change your 😞 smiley to .
@Sandeep - while dragging items in the content panel is possible, in practice with a complex page it tends not to work properly in Acrobat X- and will have implications for page reflow and accessibility. For situations where a single content item must be added back into the page from an external source, we have found that using OCGs is a much simpler and more reliable solution for users.
Yeah, that true! You would face difficulties with complex pages. I agree.
You possibly need to run the accessibility setup assistant again.
Thank you all for your answers. Finally, because I needed this document to be ready on Monday morning and it was not sure that someone will answer to my question, I've remade whole document. By this I've lost about 5 hours of work - but I've survived it and I can write 🙂 again...
However, I've tried both of the proposed solutions - both of them are working well, even if it is true that for complex pages with hundreds items in the content pane it is little bit difficult to find the exact place where to move the covering item. When I've tried it on my damaged document, in 10 minutes I've succeed to have everything on the correct "depth".
So, next time I'll know how to do it.
Thank you all once again...
🙂 🙂 🙂
It is so weird that we miss this basic feature in Acrobat while some other competitive software do the job. However accedently I find a beter solution even in complex pages with hundreds items.
jut select the item(2) you want to bring front of a specific object and cut it and past it again, that's it.
acrobat will reserve the same order of the itmes you cut it and past it with the same order in the same place but in front of the itme you didnt cutt in the first place.
This is the only solution that worked for me on Acrobat 2020
If you print to PDF, then edit in Adobe you can type on top of the document. It flattens it in one step.
