How to Insert a Blank Page Into a PDF

by Jen Miller ; Updated September 28, 2017

With Adobe Acrobat, you can create PDFs by converting files of many different formats, such as word processing, image and Web pages. You can also create simple PDFs from blank pages and add elements, such as text, graphics, and page numbers. In addition to creating PDFs, you can also edit PDFs in many ways. You can, for example, edit text, add comments and digitally sign PDF files. You can also add, extract, rotate and delete pages.

Configure PDF Page Properties

Open Adobe Acrobat, select "Edit" and choose "Preferences." The "Preferences" dialog box appears.

Click "New Document" and configure font, margin and page properties for the new page.

Click "OK" to close the "Preferences" dialog box.

Create a New Blank PDF

Click "File," select "Create PDF" and choose "From Blank Page." A new PDF page, with the default properties you specified in the "Preferences" dialog box appears in a new Acrobat window.

Modify the page as appropriate; for example, you can add text, backgrounds and headers or footers.

Click "File" and choose "Save As." The "Save As" dialog box appears.

Type a name for the file in the "File Name" field, choose where you want to save the file and click "Save."

Insert the Blank Page

Open the PDF into which you want to insert the blank PDF page, click "Document," select "Insert Pages" and choose "From File" (in Windows) or "Insert Pages" (in Macintosh). The "Select File to Insert" dialog box appears.

Select the blank page you want to insert and click "Insert." The "Insert Pages" dialog box appears.
