Split by Picking a Range of Pages

 

Your PDF might have 100 pages, but you only need pages 10 to 20 and 51 to 60. In this scenario, you'd split the PDF into two separate PDFs containing the pages you chose to extract:

  1. In "Management" mode, choose a file and tap on the "Split" button
  2. Specify the page range to extract them from the PDF (Entering page 10-20 and 51-60 as an example)
  3. PDF Reader would create 2 PDFs containing page 10-20 and 51-60
  4. The output files will be saved to the destination folder

If you are tired of separating pages in PDF, then you can try this mode to randomly  divide the PDF into several files with equal page numbers.

  1. In "Management" mode, choose a file and tap on the "Split" button
  2. Enter a number to equally divide the PDF into multiple files as you like
  3. The output files will be saved to the destination folder
