How to split a PDF file into several parts: the simplest methods
Very often, because of the large amount of data, you need to split the PDF file, for example, to copy to removable media or send via e-mail. A few basic methods will be given below.
How to split a PDF file: what to use?
First, let's define a possible listtools. Just pay attention to the fact that in any program designed to view this format, to divide the PDF file into several components will not work. Therefore, they are called viewers to only show, not edit content.
In the simplest way, you can split a PDF filewith the help of appropriate editors. Naturally, it is best to use "native" Adobe applications (for example, Adobe Acrobat Pro of any version, but not Acrobat Reader, because these are two completely different programs).
Also great are the products of otherdevelopers, although there are fewer opportunities in them. In the extreme case, if you do not want to deal with such processes yourself, it's easiest to turn to specialized online resources that allow you to perform such operations.
A way to split a PDF file with Adobe editors
As an example, consider the Adobe Acrobat XI Pro editor. To select the tools required to work with an open document, you need to go to the viewing menu.
Here, the tool section is first selected, andthen - the menu of pages (the additional panel will automatically appear in the right part of the main window). Next, the menu selects the line "Split document" and specifies the criteria for the operation.
There can be three of them:
- number of pages;
- separation on the top bookmarks;
- the size of the destination file.
Choosing one option, you just need to confirmseparation. In addition, using the output options, you can specify the folder in which the shared files will be saved, and if you use the split command for several files, you will need to add them to the list and confirm the operation.
Using third-party programs
You can also split a PDF file using applications like PDF Splitter, Foxit PhantomPDF, PDF Split and Merge, or similar.
They also choose their criterion of separation,However, the options and settings are much smaller. You can even use the Chrome browser, which displays the output to print and specifies the desired range of pages, if you go to the parameters of local save locations.
Finally, if there is no program at hand orjust do not want to do it manually, you can go to any specialized site where you will be prompted to add the file (s) to the list, and then start the process. The advantage of such services is that you can add files even from "cloud" storage like Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and many others.
