Here, I will show you the usage of the PDF splitter and tutorial of how to split a PDF file:

First thing you have to do is to download the PDF Splitter and install it. Then an interactive GUI will pop up.

  • Split by every n pages:
    You can set how many pages within PDF, it splits by.
  • Split a PDF file by bookmarks:
    It allows you to select the split level by bookmark and customize the setting to split a PDF file more efficiently.
  • Split a PDF file by page range (e.g. 1-7, 9-11, odd and even):
    You can split specific page ranges from one multi-page PDF file and combine them into a new one.
  • Split a PDF to multiple files:
    You can split certain page ranges from one large PDF file to produce multiple PDF files at the same time.
    Click into the Setting, you can add dozens of copies of PDF file to specify desired page range individually.
  • Split averagely to n PDF files:
    You can split a large PDF file averagely to n smaller PDF files.

Step 3: Choose an output name pattern and type in a basic file name. Click “Browse” icon to assign output path. Finally, click “Split” icon and you will split a PDF file successfully within seconds.
