Editing Compound Objects

After a compound object has been added to a collection, CONTENTdm provides multiple options for making changes to the objects. You can edit metadata and structure in both the Project Client and the Web Editor.

However, you cannot edit the structure or delete individual pages of PDF compound objects by using the Web Editor. To change the structure or delete individual pages of PDF compound objects, you must delete the compound object from the collection, update the structure or remove the pages in the original PDF file, and import the file again.
