    I read a lot of PDF's on the TP. Is there a way to delete or move a page of a PDF to create a more condensed document?

    Example: In a 5 page PDF, the middle 3 pages are filled with junk info. Therefore, the middle 3 pages are removed and the PDF document now consists of only page 1 and 5.

    The only way I can figure this out is to take a screen shot of the pages I like.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Picsel Smart Office might bring this feature to webOS (see linked thread).

    This can be done with free software called ghostscript, available on all platforms. It is a bit complicated, but have a look here: [cli] Combine or remove pages from a PDF document using ghostscript *NIX Tricks

    Ok - for non-webOS-Systems there are plenty of solutions available, even much less complicated than using ghostscript.

    You can use ghostscript on webos if you care to install debian or ubuntu.

    Adobe Acrobat (which is used to make PDFs) can also do it on your PC. You just go on the menu to Document/Delete Pages. Acrobat can also often reduce the file size, extract images, etc. I don't think these features are in the free Adobe Reader though, only the not-free Acrobat.
