Problem deleting PDF's

Terry Converse Dec 23, 2017 07:49PM PST

I have two problems with deleting. One problem is that in one of my SECTIONS, I dragged a PDF onto the page. It worked fine, but a later time I needed to delete it. I was unable to delete the PDF. I could delete any other text on the page, but not the PDF.

My second problem is related to the first. I figured that maybe one way to fix the CAN'T DELETE PDF problem is to try and DELET the entire SECTION, and create a new SECTION from scratch. Unfortunately I was unable to delete the section. Is there a special procedure needed to delete a section?

Are there any solutions to this? In the past, when I've encountered a problem, I'm almost always to send a screen shot which I'm willing to do if absolutely necessary. In this case, a screen shot isn't going to really reveal anything.

Thanks much,
Terry

I would also like to know how to delete an imported pdf from a Page on iPad.

(Regarding the second problem, although I haven‘t deleted a Section, I am able to delete a Page).

Regards
Vernon

I find it irritating that my question posted on Dec. 23 remains unanswered on Jan. 6. Even if there is no solution, there should be the courtesy of responding back.

Here again is my problem:

Hello Terry,

sorry, that we didn't reach you earlier. Our team was on holidays.

Please let me first ask you, are you on iPad or Mac?

Could you please send me a screenshot showing the section context menu? What option are there? Is there no DELETE?

Looking forward to hearing from you!
