Moving pages with page thumbnails

Page thumbnails offer a convenient way to preview pages. In previous lessons, you used page thumbnails to navigate a document. Now you’ll use them to quickly rearrange pages in a document.

  1. Click the Page Thumbnails button (thumbnails_button.jpg) in the navigation pane.

    The Meridien Wi-fi page is out of place. According to the table of contents, it should follow the page titled “What is the City of Meridien Conference?”

  2. Click the page 2 thumbnail to select it.
  3. Drag the selected thumbnail image down until the insertion bar appears between the thumbnails of pages 4 and 5.
  4. Release the mouse button to insert the page at its new position.

    The Meridien Wi-fi page now follows the “What is the City of Meridien Conference?” page, and it precedes the “Why participate?” page.

  5. To check the sequence of pages, choose View > Page Navigation > First Page to go to the first page of the document (if you’re not already there), and then use the Next Page button (next-page-button.jpg) to page through the presentation.
  6. When you’re satisfied that the pages are in the correct order, close the Page Thumbnails panel. Then choose File > Save to save your work.
