"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Using Acrobat with the document open you can use the Split Document command under the Document menu item to split the document into 5 seperate documents.

Also you can use the Export command under the file menu to export as images.

Hope this helps

There is no export under file menu

and there is no document menu
Sorry, you're right for that version. I was looking at my version which does have these features.

In the tools pain on the right hand side under pages you should find the split document option.
Looks like the export image option should be under the file menu but has now been moved to an option called Save As Other...

Show the page thumbnails, then right click on one, and you'll get this menu:

Acrobat thumbnails right-click
Select Extract Pages and in that dialog tick the Extract Pages as Separate Files box:

Extract Pages as Separate Files
Choose a folder and that will do it. Regards, Joe

save as other is only option (no extract pages)
save as other is only option
but I do not know what to put in two textboxes
I put 'file' in one textBox

and what radio buttons should I select?
Joe Winograd, Fellow&MVEDeveloperCommented:
I'm sure Extract Pages is there in Adobe Acrobat XI — it is in my Adobe Acrobat X Standard, and I'd be shocked if it isn't in Acrobat XI (both Standard and Pro). It is not in Adobe Reader XI, but you said Adobe Acrobat XI.

To show the Page Thumbnails, do this:

Navigation Panes
Page Thumbnails

Or simply click the Page Thumbnails icon on the left:

Show Page Thumbnails
The steps above are for Acrobat X, so it may be a bit different for XI, but it shouldn't be tough to figure out how to show the page thumbnails.

Then right-click on any page thumbnail and you will see the context menu I posted before with the "Extract Pages..." item. Regards, Joe
