How To Split PDF Files [Tutorial]

When scanning a document, the most preferred document type is PDF. This format makes it easy to print, store and share documents or scanned images, IDs or even whole books.

If you don’t want to interrupt the scanning process to switch between articles, books, or whatever you are scanning, we have a very handy tip for you today: split PDF documents into two or more documents!

This article will explain to you how to split a PDF easily without having to install any additional software. You can do it online and completely for free with PDF2Go! 

Divide PDFs Into Several Documents

If you want to split a PDF into two parts, three parts, etc. or even want to save each page as an individual document, you came to the right place. PDF2Go makes it easy to separate PDF pages online without any cost for you.

No installation, no downloading. All you have to do is upload your file and select where you want the cut to be made. Since it’s as easy as cutting paper, a scissor and a dashed line will indicate where your document will be “cut” into two (or more). The thumbnails generated of each page make it easy to see where you want to place the cut.

How To Split PDF Files

There are no additional options you have to take into account when splitting a PDF. So let us dive right in:

  1. Go to www.PDF2Go.com/Split-PDF
  2. Upload your file. Word documents or images can be uploaded as well, as long as they contain two or more pages resp. layers. Once split, the resulting files will always be PDFs though.
  3. Click on the scissor icon next to the page after which you want to split the document.
  4. Click on “Save” to open the menu and click on the “Save” button again. After a short while, you can download the split pages individually, or all in one ZIP file.
  5. Alternatively, you can click on “Split All” to save each PDF page individually.
  6. You changed your mind? Using the “Reset” button, you can reset all cuts you have indicated.
