Foxit Reader

The second PDF pages reordering software is Foxit Reader, which is both well-known and powerful. Aside from the basic functions ranging from editing, signing, commenting, and combining PDFs, the software is also able to help with changing PDF pages order. So what should we do? The processing of PDF files with disordered pages in Foxit Reader is quite different from that in ApowerPDF.

  • Launch the program and choose a file whose pages are disordered.
  • Click “View page thumbnails and re-order pages” button.

If you don’t like downloading software for the purpose of changing files page order, the third method is right for you. It’s an online tool called Hipdf which can help you change PDF page order online. Hipdf is an all-in-one online PDF solution belonging to Wondershare. By using Hipdf, you can edit PDFs directly in your web browser.

  • Visit its official page and click “choose file” to select the file you want to edit, or just drop the file into the box above.

  • After uploading, there are some page thumbnails displayed.


  • Drag the disordered page and drop it to the correct location.


  • Apply and wait until the file is processed.


  • Then download, save it and you can reorder PDF pages in right place.

Besides importing files from local, Google Drive, and Dropbox, Onedrive is also supported. However, the number of uses is limited, as you can only use it twice within 24 hours. For the sake of using it without any limitations, you have to log in and subscribe.


Generally speaking, the method of changing PDF page order in ApowerPDF and Hipdf is similar. But one is on PC and the other is on the web. To handle files with a few pages, drag and drop is fantastic and convenient. Once there’re too many pages in the file, drag and drop doesn’t work as well andunder these circumstances, the function “swap pages” can be more efficient. And if you don’t have a stable internet connection, you can’t use Hipdf. But you don’t have to download any software to use it. So which one do you use and why? Let us know with a comment below.
