Q&A 29: Is it possible to split out Page 1&2 of a PDF

Q: Is it possible to split out Page 1&2 of a PDF, rename it and move it to a location but also rename the rest of the PDF and move that to a different location?

A: Yes this is possible. We’ve added a couple of screenshits to get you started.

>Add PDF as Destination:

> You’ll need to add 2 PDF Actions. The first Action will split the first 2 pdf files to the output directory.

  • Output.01.pdf contains the first pdf page from multipage pdf source file
  • Output.02.pdf contains the second pdf page from multipage pdf source file
  • Output.pdf contains all pdf pages from multipage pdf source file except first and second
