Create a PDF from a blank page

You can create a PDF from a blank page rather than beginning with a file, a clipboard image, or scanning.

This process can be useful for creating a one-page PDFs. For longer, more complex, or heavily formatted documents, it’s better to create the source document in an application that offers more layout and formatting options, such as Adobe InDesign or Microsoft Word.

  1. In Adobe® Acrobat® X Pro, close any open documents.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • (Windows) Choose Tools > Pages > More Insert Options > Insert Blank Page.

    • (Mac OS) Press Command+Shift+Q.

A blank single-page PDF is created. Using Insert Blank Page command again adds another page to the existing PDF.
