Unable to split document - Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended

Posted on 2012-08-22
Last Modified: 2012-09-24

One of the users in our organization has scanned a file to PDF.
File size - 16 MB
No. of Pages - 34

The user is not able to send the file through email as its bigger than the organization's email size limit. And so she tries to split the document to multiple files. But when splitting, getting error message,

"There is not enough memory to optimize the file"

Any assistance is much appreciated.

    Hi Merete,

    Sorry for delayed reply. Thanks for your suggestion. In our organization there are more users have access to Acrobat Pro 9 and they should be able to split the document properly.

    Thanks once again
