Split PDF Profiles

Split PDF Profiles allow you to save custom split settings as templates that can be used again later to split documents. There is also an option available to "Show on Menu" and when this is set for the profile it will be put under Document > Rearrange Pages > Split Document so that the profile can be run in just two clicks from the document menu.

Note: You do not need to create or save a split configuration before splitting a document. To split documents without saving settings just go to Document > Rearrange Pages > Split Document > Custom Split and choose the settings to use and click Apply to run the split settings without saving a profile.

Creating a Split PDF Profile

  1. Select Document > Rearrange Pages > Split Document > Custom Split from the menu.  
  2. Fill in the desired Split PDF Options for the current split configuration.
  3. Set all of the options that you would like to have in your profile. You can either start from an existing profile or a blank template by selecting "<new item>" from the drop down.
  4. Once you have completed your settings, click on Save. This will bring up a window to name your profile.
  5. If you are starting from a blank template this field will be blank. If you started from a previous profile the previous profiles name will be displayed. If you would like to just update the previous profile leave the name and click OK. If you would like to create a new profile just type in the new name you would like to save it as and click OK.
  6. Once complete your profile will now be available in the drop down menu as well as the quick options in the menu bar

Split a PDF Document Using an Existing Split Profile

There are 2 ways to apply an existing split profile:

From the Split dialog

Open the document that you would like to split. Open the Split dialog from Document > Rearrange Pages > Split Document > Custom Split. Choose the split profile from the drop down list in the combo box, click on the Apply button at the bottom of the dialog.

From the Split Document menu

Open the document that you would like to split. Under the Document > Rearrange Pages > Split Document menu, there is a list of all the split profiles that you have previously created.

Note: Only the ones for which you chose the Show on Menu option will appear on this list. Click on the split profile in the list you'd like to run and it will begin immediately using the settings saved in the split profile.
