InDesign can export in reverse order though I wouldn't want to do it for a large publication. To do it, specify each page in reverse order, ie...16,15,14,13 etc. It won't let you enter something like 16-1 to do all 16 in reverse order. You have to enter each page individually.


Cool. Damned cool. One to keep in the back pocket.

The PitStop Pro “Reverse Page Order” standard action list is also one of my faves!

Getting an error message after I enter the script
Tried typing the bracket after where it is highlighted but that didn't work


this is what you need to put in the script box, all of it in its entirity:

for (var i = this.numPages - 1; i >= 0; i--) this.movePage(i);

Because I'm at the new shop with a *new* computer, I still come across things from time-to-time I need to update. We have PitStop, but it's an ancient version on Acrobat 9 and ONLY on the Fiery. So I had to look this up again, but then I couldn't remember how to do it. Just putting this here as a reminder: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/how-to-reverse-pages-order-in-acrobat-pro-dc/td-p/7954076

In Acrobat Pro DC  Go to

Tools --> [scroll all the way down] -->
Customize -->
Action Wizard -->
New Action --> [Scroll down under left panel "Choose Tools to add: -->
More Tools -->
Execute JavaScript -->
the new action will appear on the right panel -->
Set your defaults: I left it on  -- Files to be Processed --> Currently open file as default"
Under the "Execute Javascript" click on -->
Specify Settings   (Why doesn't it say "Enter Your Script" ??)
another panel opens... paste in this script:
    for (var i = this.numPages - 1; i >= 0; i--) this.movePage(i);
click OK to close and then save the action...
You will be prompted to name the action,
name it " Reverse Page Order"  and save..
Now new action appears in the action wizard Actions List "Reverse Page Order"
it works!

Here is another way to reverse order pdfs.
Extract all the pages,
Now go to File> Combine> Merge files into a Single PDF.
Then click the "Name" tab on the top left and this will reverse the order of the pages.
Press "Combine Files" and now you have a pdf in reversed order.

We've got Quite Imposing which will do this in a "click", but I like the creativity of that one!

You could extract a 10,000 page pdf to your desktop and tell the boss, looking at your desktop: "Boy, am I busy!"
