How do I move a section of Pages within a document ?

Hi there,
I am writing my thesis and I want to move a group of 6 pages (representing a chapter) from one area of my document to another. I inserted a 'Section Break' at the end of the page preceeding the first page of my grouping, and inserted another at the end of the 6th page of my grouping. I've done this for all the chapter groupings of my document.
When I look at the thumbnail view on the side of the document, I can see that each chapter grouping is enclosed by a yellow line box if I click on a page within the chapter grouping. So far so good, I think. Except now when I click of one of those groupings and try to drag it and insert it in between two other other chapter groupings i.e. I'm trying to reorganise my chapter order, it doesn't move the section I want to move at all.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong ? Thanks in advance.
Matt.

Thanks for your advice Peter.
I continued to play around with trying to move the sections around (I didn't change any sectioning to what I had previously done). I found out - and I don't know why - that I could not move sections upwards as I was trying to do...only downwards.
So I eventually reorganised my sections by strategically moving them downwards until I had the document looking like I wanted it to. Still strikes me as odd. It was like doing one of those puzzles, deciding which block goes where without moving up, in as few moves as possible - but I eventually got it done.

    How do I move apps from one page to another?

    From a previous thread:
    Touch and hold any icon for a couple of seconds. They'll all start to wobble. Touch and drag the one you want to move to the side of the screen and the next screen will appear; drop the icon on whatever screen you want it on.
    You can also do it quicker in iTunes - connect the phone and click the Apps tab in the main window. You'll see a picture of your phone with the apps laid out. Just click and drag

  • How can i move to a new page in smartform?

    hi friends
    i hav a smartform with two pages.
    the fist page contains the Main window and 3 Secondary windows.
    in the 1st page i'm displaying some line items and in the main window i gave the command to
    go to Page 2.
    the 2nd page contains only one Secondary Window.
    in that i want to display a table with many line items.
    if it contains only 20 line items its works fine; becoz of the window size.
    how can i move to a new page if it contains more line items?

    Hi,
    You need to create main Window on second page also.
    And in Form Attributes..there is an option for Next page.
    So there you mention the next page name.
    This will solve the problem.
    Thanks.

  • How do you move an image in pages?

    How do i move an image in pages? I copied and pasted it onto the document but when I try to drag it, it just jumps back to where it was.

    All you have to do is command click out side the text zone and make sure there is no clicking line to wright text, and then just go insert/choose/ and then choose the image you want. It should then let you move it around. Hope this helped.

  • How to insert a page within a document

    I need to insert an additional page within a document without reformatting my layout.
    How do I do that?
    --- So far "Insert" > "sections" > "text page or blank" puts the additional page at the end of the doument.
    Tips anyone?
    (Pages 09 version 4.3)

    Luanne,
    When you Insert a Section from the Add Section tool or the Insert Menu, the new section will be inserted directly after the current section, the section that the Insertion Cursor is in, or the Section Selected in the Thumbnails pane.
    You can't insert a new section in the middle of an existing section, so it goes at the end of a 1-section document, which is what I would guess you have, a 1-section document. What you probably should do is insert a Section Break at the point where yiu want to add a section or page. Or forget about adding a Section and just Insert a Page Break there.

    When I try to reorder different pages it just takes all the pages within the document and turns them into a stack! Why is this happening and how can I oder pages as the update is meant to let me?
    Any Help?I know the update has only been out a while but if anyone has an idea why it is doing this, please let me know!

    But you are telling me something I already know.
    Be precise.
    It is not Pages '09 that is broken.
    I am back in Mavericks and testing Pages 5.2.
    There are improvements, we shall see how useful, but in less than a minute I have already discovered bugs.

  • How do I move pages within a document?

    I have a manual I created for work and I want to reorder the pages. I want a move a section to the beginning but when I try to move the pages, it moves multiple pages at once. There is a yellow box surrounding the pages affected. I don't know how to change or remove the box.
    THanks in advance!

    You may only move a section (as indictaed by the yellow border) as a whole.
    Sections are separated by section breaks. So if you want to further divide your book, insert a Section Break as needed.
    Text flows from page to page in a Word Processing document, it is unrealistic to think of them as random pieces of paper to be shuffled on whim. That would have the same effect as tearing out individual pages in a real book and pasting them in somewhere else.

  • How do I move or copy a page from one pages doc to another?

    I used to frequently move or copy a page from one multiple-page Pages document to another just but dragging and dropping the thumbnail.  Since I upgraded I can't do this anymore.  How can I do it now?

    It never worked that way in Pages '09. You have to copy and paste the Thumbnails.
    That no longer works in Pages 5. Sounds like you are not copying and pasting content because that certainly works. Read what VikingOS wrote and do precisely what he said.

  • How do I minimize a section in Pages 5.1

    I simply want to add a page to a Pages document.  When I add one, for whatever reason it adds a page, but puts the yellow box around it and the prior page, then has another page after that section.  Why is it doing this, I just want to add one page. 

    JHodges1 wrote:
    Yeah my question is, how do I minimize that section down to one page, not two? All I know is, the older version of Pages was much easier, when I laste updated, it changed functions and made things more difficult. Frustrated!!
    JH,
    Put the cursor where you want to end the first section and Insert > Section Break.

  • How can you move to a specific page in a large document

    Trying to move to specific page within a 90-page document on I-Pad, other than scrolling--Is there a way to "go to" page # whatever?

    Okay,
    I just loaded up Dropbox to check it out.  When you are looking at your PDF in the Dropbox window, you can click the Action button in the upper right, (the box with the curved right arrow), and that gives you the option to Open In...  iBooks.  If you don't have iBooks yet, you can download it free from the App Store.
    One it's in iBooks, you can search and go to pages with it.  iBooks allows you to create "Collections" (folders), where you can sort your documents (books).  Try it out.

  • How do I add video to a Pages for iOS document?

    I thought that with the latest updates to Pages that there would be 1:1 parity between the MacOS X and iOS versions of  Pages.  However, I am unable to figure out how to add video to Pages in iOS as I can easily do in Pages for MacOS X (just drag & drop).  What is the secret to including video into a Pages for iOS document? Or is this just not possible?  I don't see how audio can be added either.  It seems to be Photos only from the + icon.

    The video should be in your camera roll, tap the +, then the music note and choose your video.
