Unable to delete page while in "Fill a Copy"

Will Fuentes Oct 18, 2017 02:40PM CDT

Hello Support,

We are having issues deleting a page while we are in the middle of filling out a copy. To clarify, we uploaded a pdf to Templates, then started "Fill a Copy".

Once we are filling out a copy, we loose our page controls. So, then we are unable to delete pages.

For Chrome browser & Google Drive on a windows 10 computer.

This is expected behavior when filling a copy. If you need to delete a page from the PDF, you’ll need to do that while in normal edit mode for the template. The workflow to fill a copy doesn’t include deleting or adding pages since it’s supposed to be an identical copy of the original file and just with new field values. You can still add new annotations to the copy by using the Tool Bar, but you can’t use the Page Controls actions to delete or rotate or add a page, If you don’t own this template, you can make a copy of it first and then use Page Controls or the File > Actions menu to append a page. You can learn more about appending a page at the link below. The link will even take you to the section of the article for appending files:
