PDF split. Choosing split type
Icecream PDF Split & Merge offers 4 types of splitting. Only one type can be applied at a time.
Splitting into files of 1 page
This type of splitting allows saving each page of the original document as a separate file. As a result, there is a certain number of new documents equal to the number of pages in the input file.
Splitting into groups of N pages
This type of splitting allows splitting a document into several groups of an equal number of pages. To configure this option, enter two values: the first one is a desired number of pages in each file, and the second one is a sequence number of page to start splitting from. Specify these two values in the suggested fields to start splitting.
Getting rid of certain pages
This type of splitting allows deleting some pages from the original document. To delete the unnecessary pages, each one should be added to the deletion list. To do that, enter the number of a page in the suggested box and press the “Add page” button. The added pages will appear down below as red labels with the numbers of pages on them. To delete a certain page from the list, click on the “Delete” button on a corresponding label. To delete all the added pages, press the “Clear all” button to the right of the split type area.
Splitting by page ranges
This option allows a user to set custom interval values and save them as isolated files. Set the desired intervals by specifying the numbers of its first and the last pages and press the “Add range” button. Users can set several ranges even if they are overlapping one another. Each interval would be displayed as a red label with a corresponding range mark. To delete a certain interval, click on the “Delete” button on a corresponding label. To delete all the added ranges, press the “Clear all” button to the right of the split type area.
