retiraden2001, did you try reading the Readme.doc file that comes with the software? It's very easy to split PDFs. For the easy case: If you have a file called C:\bigpdfwithmanypages.pdf and you want to create a file containing only pages 1-3 of bigpdfwithmanypages.pdf, then you create a text file that contains: C:\bigpdfwithmanypages.pdf ; 1-3 Then, just open the text file in PDFMerge (File/Open ....) , and hit the Merge / Split button. A new PDF will be created with just pages 1-3 from C:\bigpdfwithmanypages.pdf. The new PDF will be named with whatever file name you have entered in the "Save to PDF Filename" field in PDFMerge. Seems pretty straightforward to me.
Bookmark import works very well. Optionally you can copy the file names of the files to be merged into bookmarks. Very useful. Supports drag-and-drop, optionally adding page numbering or foot note and also adding annotations to the file (title, subject, author). Over all an excellent piece of open source software. Room for improvement ? Sure, if it could be made portable that would be fantastic. Thanks for the work !
I have used the Merge function on a couple of ocassions without any problems. Now I want to use the opposite and split a file into several pdfs, however after adding up the file and pressing the green Merge/Split button, the file is not split. I can not find a reference as to what I am not doing right and hope that someone can shed some light. Thanks.
As for me this app is quite simple. I use it to split and merge pdf files because Adobe Acrobat and Fine Reader are too big and expensive. Also I use pdffactorypro in my firm. Both apps are good for me.
