Step By Step: How To Split PDF Online

If you have questions about how to split PDFs with this tool, here’s the procedure to follow:

  1. To upload the file to be split. Click on the red "Select PDF file" button. By clicking on it, you will be able to upload the PDF documents you want to split. Another option is to drag the files directly into the space where you can clearly read "Or drag and drop PDF files here".
  2. You will automatically start uploading your PDF to the splitting tool. It should not take more than a few seconds unless the file takes up a lot of space. In that case, it will take a little longer.
  3. With the file already uploaded to the tool, you will see a split menu in which you can specify the exact way in which you want to separate the document. Set it as you like: specify whether you want to split the document by page ranges or simply extract pages (in which case, you can extract all pages or just a specific one/s.)
  4. To finish, you just have to click on the "Split" button, and then the split file should download automatically (if not, click on the "Download file" button on the screen.)

  1. Open the PDF file you want to split with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.
  2. Look at the right-side menu. There, you will find many document-related options. Click on "Organize pages". it might be tricky to find it because it’s not properly labeled, but it is the function you need for this task.
  3. Click on the "Organize" button and, from here, follow the on-screen instructions to separate your PDF as you like.

  2. Tap on "View" and then click on the "Thumbnails" option.

  1. Once you’ve installed the app, navigate to the Files app (Files, the default app for viewing files on your iPhone), select the document you want to split, tap on the "Share" icon (with an arrow pointing upwards) that you’ll find at the bottom of the screen, and then choose the PDF merge app that you previously installed.
