Map Layers

I have a single pdf file with 3 pages of maps. I load it in as a map layer but only one of the pages is visible. How do I get to the other pages? I found one solution. I found someone who has a paid version of Acrobat Reader. The paid versions allow you to break out all of the pages into single PDFs. I would still like to know a way to do it without the paid Acrobat .

    I assume that you are importing the PDF as a map sheet? CalTopo can only read the first page of a multi-page PDF for import. You do need to separate the individual pages. On a Mac you can do this easily by opening the file in preview and from the side bar (thumbnails) dragging each page to the desktop. I don't believe that Windows has a similar feature, but I suspect there is another online tool that can split the pages for you.

    Julie,Thanks for the quick response. The paid versions of Acrobat Reader allow you to break out the pages. My wife has that for her work and that was what I did. I broke out the individual pages. Keep up the good work on a great product.
