There are numerous methods to split PDFs by using free software online. However, there would be security issues if there is confidential information. Here I introduce 3 different tools to split PDF. Solution 1. Split PDF with PDFelement Open the program - Go to âPageâ - Click the âSplitâ You will be able to split the PDF document. A new window appears you can select the number of pages or top-level bookmarks to split. Afterwards, the new PDF files saved in the output folder. Solution 2. Split the PDF with Google Chrome Open the file you want to split in Google Chrome - Click the âPrintâ button on the top right corner. Then âSave as PDFâ and enter the number of pages required for the new document. This solution might be costing time because you need to print and save many times if you want to split a very large PDF. Solution 3. Split PDF with online PDF tools without installing any desktop software such as hipdf.com. But the internet connection is required.
