I am modifying an existing PDF file. The modifications end up with some blank pages that I want to remove. I right click on the page thumbnail and select Delete Page... I put in the specific page number and Enter. Some pages delete fine but a couple always end up throwing the error "An incorrect structure was found in the PDF file."

I don't have a clue what this is nor how to resolve. Can anyone offer an explanation and steps to solve?

Thanks a lot in advance!!

I too, have the very same problem regarding "incorrect structures in pdf files." Does anyone know what this is referring to and what to do about it?

My files often freeze and I cannot delete any pages after this happens. Other times, it acts like there is nothing wrong.

Hi Patty - I found a solution. I merely dragged the page to be deleted to the end of the file and then deleted it from there. Apparently moving it to the end resets the structure. I did it with one page and then with a block of three consecutive pages. I have not tried with non-consecutive pages.

Hope this helps -- Kevin

How did you know which pages precisely were had the incorrect structure?
