Splitting a two-page A5 PDF doc (printed side by side on landscape A4 paper) as two separate pages

I have a PDF document that is made up of A5 pages (two per page side by side) printed on A4 landscape which makes the text too small to read easily. I want to separate the A5 pages and print each as a separate A4 page. How do I do this?

"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.

unless you have the original document from which the pdf was created, there is not really much you can do.

you could try to open it in an image editor app (like GIMP) and resize the document to see if that helps

Here's what I would do.

First open the PDF in my favorite PDF viewer (PDF-XChange Viewer - it's a free download). Go to Print. Set Page Zoom to 141% (scaling from A5 to A4) and set Scaling Type to "Tile large pages". From Properties, make sure paper orientation is set to Portrait. Now click Print and you should get each A5 on an A4 sheet.

Note that I have not tried your specific issue as I do not have your particular document. I have, however, tried tiling with this viewer before and found it works very well.
