Dear Adobe: 

 

Please redesign the icon graphic for the "insert page" button in Acrobat.  Right now, the icon looks too similar to the "extract page" icon, and does not seem to match the action that it causes.  This is confusing and makes the software less intuitive.

 

The "insert page" icon shows an arrow that originates in the center of a single page and points outside of that page.  This suggests that something is being taken OUT of the page/document, when in fact the "insert" action is exactly the opposite.  In other words, the arrow should originate from outside of the document and point into the center of it, to show that a thing is being inserted.   In particular, the "insert page" icon looks substantially the same as the "extract page" icon, which itself shows an arrow originating inside the page and pointing outwards.  Given that the two functions are essentially opposites, they should show opposite things.
