Split Pages and Save PDF

[ Edited ]

I'm trying to develop a workflow that will split pages from a PDF document and then save them individually to my network. The PDF’s that will go in this workflow will be various page counts.

 

I have tried to use the Split component but the only way that worked is if I add a table to a specific rule for each page range. That is not ideal obviously since the pages will vary so greatly each time.

Are you splitting off and saving each page individually?  (For example, the PDF is 9 pages long, so you end up with 9 one-page documents?) If that is the case, then you can try looping the split node.  I have an example below. (Note that I have an older version of Core, but I think the functionality is the same here.)

 

A Split Loop:

The first branch:

This will split off the first page and have it continue down the workflow.

Page Selection should equal a Page Range of 1

 

The second branch:

This will loop the remaining pages back to the split node to be run through again. 

Page Selection should equal a Page Range of 2--1  (two hyphen hyphen 1)

Note:  -1 (hyphen 1) refers to the last page of a document.

 

 

This is what it will look like in a workflow.

Branch One is on top, Branch Two is wrapped back around to the node. The loop cycle will repeat until all pages are through.

 

Give this a try and see if it works for you.

Re: Split Pages and Save PDF

There are also options to split files into segments. Depending on what you want to do those may be a better alternative
