Break down the file by chapters

Hi I have a book attached. Can we split it into chapters?

Thanks.

If I understand your question correctly then you want to take this one PDF and split it into 61 PDFs each containing one chapter?

You can do this using Adobe Acrobat Pro and use the Document>>Extract Pages command from the file menu, this also allows you to specify that the extracted pages are saved as separate files and that the pages are deleted from the original.

The other option if a little more laborious on the outset, would be to insert bookmarks at the relevant chapter starts and then use the Split document command from the same menu. There you can specify the output options and that the document should split by bookmark. This may be quicker in the long run as you can automate file naming

This will take a bit of time as there are 61 chapters but given that this is a one off it will be a straight forward option. There is really no way to automate this that would be any quicker, with javascript you could possibly add bookmarks but you have too many chapter references for this to make it easy.

You can download a trial from Adobe's website, which gives you enough time to evaluate the functions as described above.

I downloaded trial edition before. I can't download and reuse it again unless I format my desktop.

Sorry I don't understand how that  affect the quality of the solution if you don't mention this.

I now have a B rating against my record, which is not warranted...

Well. I do appreciate your input but usually the best solution will provide free software or method rather than non-free software.
