I am getting a PDF file from
one of my users that has
multiple pages. I would like to
seperate out the pages so that
I can save out each page as a
seperate file. Is there a
way to do this?
Thank you.

Yes. You could use a PDF maker software. There are some free ones available out there. Anyhow, the PDF maker installs a "printer" of sorts. The printer acts as a PDF maker. So, find the page you want to separate. Act as if you want to print it. When the print options open, select the PDF maker instead of a live printer. Also tell it to only print the page(s) that you want to separate (not the whole document).

In theory this should be able to strip single pages from a multipage document into new PDFs.

I meant to add that after you press the print button. The PDF maker will gather the document (it spools the document as if it were being printed). Once gathered it will usually then open the PDF maker software and ask you where you would like to save it. Tell it which folder to save the new PDF and there you go.

Hi

if you have Acrobat full version (not reader), simply use 'Extract Pages' from the Document menu and you can save all pages separately.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Depends, is this Adobe Reader (not full) or Acrobat Pro or Standard?

Extract Files? You should have 'Extract Pages' under the Document menu. If this is Extract pages, you simply select this option and you see the dialog below. Tick the bottom box and select all pages in the number fields ie 1 to 10 of 10 and then you get 10 separate files.
