Hi All,

I have a 1700 page PDF that is broken up with 23 bookmarked chapters. I've tried splitting the document up by Top Level Bookmarks. However, for some reason not there are pages missing from their respective chapters.

Is there another way that I can split this document's bookmarked chapters into 23 separate PDF files?

I am using Adobe Acrobat Standard DC & I also have Adobe Distiller Professional v. 15.6 (I've never used Distiller)

Thanks All!

✔ Best Answer
Sorry, I don't use Adobe software so can't be of assistance with that particular software,
but I have used Icecream PDF Split & Merge to break apart smaller PDF files.

It works with Pages,
IE: Single Pages, Groups of Pages or Pages by Range,

The Pages by Range may be of help, the Manual states:

"Users can set several ranges even if they are overlapping one another"

They have a freeware version and a PRO (Paid) version,

The freeware version has a Page limit per document in Split Mode of 40 pages,
so you may have to run the program several times to get everything you want.

You can download it here:

If you install a PDF printer (cutePDF, pdfCreator, etc) you can use it as if it was a physical printer. When you print a document of any kind, including pdf's, you simply choose the "app" from your printer list, choose which pages you want print, and click print. It looks and feels just like any other printer.

A Save dialog box will appear and after you give it a file name, a new pdf will be created.

As long as your chapters start and end on their own pages, you'll be able to "print" a separate pdf for each chapter.
