With Adobe Acrobat online services, you can rearrange PDF pages on a Chromebook to make your file more cohesive.

The Gallery app is native to Chromebook devices and is the default photo editing app for them. Originally intended for photo editing purposes, the app has since expanded to include features that allow for PDF editing since the Chromebook does not come with a native PDF editing app. However, its PDF editing abilities do not include page reordering. If there are other edits you would like to make in Gallery, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the bottom left of your Chromebook screen and choose the Launcher.
  2. From there, open Files.
  3. Choose your PDF.
  4. Double click the PDF to open it.

From there, you can use the editing tools at the top of the page to adjust your pages how you want them. When you’re finished editing, select Save. If you want to save new edits as a new file, select the arrow on the right side. If you want to undo an edit, select Undo. To redo, select Redo.

Rearrange PDF pages in Google Chrome.

Every Chromebook comes with the Google Chrome app for internet exploring and more. You can make adjustments to your file in Google Chrome. Follow these steps to rearrange your PDF pages in Google Chrome:

  1. Drag and drop your file into the Google Chrome app.
  2. Right-click anywhere on the page and select Print.
  3. From there, you can go to the Pages dropdown menu and save all the pages, only even-number pages, only odd-number pages, or custom pages. The custom page setting allows you to save the pages in whichever order you want.

Google Chrome serves as a simple way to rearrange your PDF pages because the app is a native feature of your Chromebook. Whether it’s your company’s latest collateral or your own personal novel that is in the works, the PDF you’re working on needs to display your content in the way it was meant to be shown. If you’re already working in Google Chrome, you can use this quick solution for rearranging pages — however, options for editing are a bit more limited. With Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat online services, you’ll find all the tools you need in one place to ensure that every detail is just right.

Additional ways to edit PDF files.

There are numerous ways to edit your PDF files as there are plenty of PDF editing software options on the market. While the native features in Google Chromebook include some great, simple, quick editing options, the range of options is limited. Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat online services include every possible editing feature and they offer easy options for sharing and collaboration across your teams.
