Create a space within a capture

I have a large instructional document, it was captured using Scrolling Window, so it's 15,000 pixels long. I want to add some instructions in the middle of it, in a few places, without covering up anything that is there. Similar to your Cut Out Feature, i need an Add In Feature, where i can split the image to create space.

It will be kind of tricksy to pull off, given the stated pixel sizes. But if you zoom out of the document you should be able to see it all. Next, you want the option to expand the canvas enabled. 

Edit > Editor Preferences > Editor.

Then it should be a fairly simple matter of selecting the lower half of the area and just dragging it down a tad to create the desired space.

Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Rick, thank you for the speedy reply, as you says tricky solution, especially since I need to make about 10 spaces within the document...that’s why I think it would be nice to have the solution within tools.

Out of curiosity, where exactly will such a document be used? 

In a print document? PDF? Somewhere online?
