Open the Organize Pages toolset
- Open the PDF in Acrobat DC, and then choose Tools > Organize Pages or choose Organize Pages from the right pane.
The Organize Pages toolset is displayed in the secondary toolbar.
You can create a document from the pages in a PDF without removing the pages from the source document.
- Reduce the size of the thumbnails by dragging the zoom bar to the left. Now you should be able to see more of your document’s pages.
- Select page 4, then hold down the Shift key and click page 9 to select the range of pages.
- Select the Extract tool, then click the Extract button.
Notice that the boxes for Delete Pages after extracting and Extract pages as separate files are NOT checked; this will generate a single new PDF file (instead of one new file for every page), and will leave the original document intact.
If you'd like to delete the pages from the original document, make sure to select Delete Pages after extracting. This will create a new PDF file with the selected pages and remove them from the original.
Save the new file
Acrobat DC creates a new document when you extract pages from a PDF. Select File > Save As to save the newly created file.
You now have two separate documents. Your new PDF contains only the pages you selected and extracted from the original file, and that original file is still intact for whenever you need to access the full document. Learn more about adding and manipulating pages in a PDF.
