Have you ever found yourself combing through a massive PDF document and wishing you could break it into smaller sections? If so, you’ve likely dreamed of a solution that could split large PDF files into more manageable documents that allow for quick and easy information sharing.
Benefits of splitting a PDF into smaller files
The Split PDF tool can help you work faster and easier with large files by splitting a single PDF into multiple new files. Whether you want to simply divide a document in two or create up to 20 new files, the Split PDF tool makes reorganizing, sharing, and saving information within large PDFs incredibly simple. All you need to do is set divider lines wherever you want to split your PDF.
- If you’re a business user, you can use the Split PDF tool to quickly split annual reports into monthly or quarterly sections for easier analysis and review. You can also split large contracts or other documents into smaller sections for review or reuse as new files.
- Educators can save valuable time by taking advantage of the tool to divide a yearlong syllabus into weekly or monthly units, setting specific page ranges as needed.
- If you’re a teacher, you can also use Split PDF to break a book into individual chapters or separate out reading assignments from a larger PDF by splitting the document into multiple files for students.
Adobe also makes it easy to organize, store, and share documents when you use the Split PDF tool. After you’ve signed into your account to split a PDF file, Acrobat saves the split files in a new folder created in Adobe Document Cloud. You can then rename, download, or share your files with others as desired.
