When you convert a lot of HTML pages to PDF it is complicated to sort out all the information properly. However, you can add a page counter to PDF copies using Total HTML Converter. It will make them comfortable for navigation.
Pagination (adding page numbers to the header or footer of the pages) is adjustable, as well as other conversion parameters. You do not need to add page numbers after or before conversion – both document editing and export to PDF is performed in one step. The program supports batch HTML conversion, and you can convert many files together. There is ability to combine them all into one, or convert each HTML page to a separate PDF document. In both cases adding page numbering is made similarly:
- Check the HTML files you want to convert
- Press PDF on the top
- Go to Display – Header or Footer
- Set header or footer template
- Make other settings (if needed)
- Press Start!
You can put any information into header or footer of the future copies, and page number is just a sample. If you type &w&bPage &p of &P macro code as a header format, it will add text like “Page 1 of 10″ into the header of each PDF copy page. You can simply type &p, and your header will display only the count of current page, like 1,2,3, etc.
Footer is editable in the same way. Besides setting a text template, you can upload header or footer from the external HTML file.
Total HTML Converter has a lot of useful options for HTML to PDF export. For instance, it supports selective conversion of only texts or only images. With its help you can also make a one-color background for PDF copies or use uploaded image as a background. PDF files can be encrypted or signed with digital signature for better security.

A student book is usually one PDF file that contains the entire course material. When the material has to be shared with students by parts, the only solution is printing specific pages and sharing the hard copies. With PDF Splitter you can split student text books into pages and share them by parts. The newest version of PDF Splitter supports advanced font types and has better data recognition engine. Thanks to this the program splits documents accurately, saving original text formatting, page structure with margins and spaces.
This is an example of bad splitting (if you get this, change your program to PDF Splitter asap):
PDF Splitter from CoolUtils offers a few splitting modes at your choice. By default PDF Splitter saves each page of an original source into a separate PDF file. It supports batch processing, and you can select any number of PDF sources for splitting. Other available modes are:
Extract only specified pages
Split source document by bookmarks
Split by blank pages.
If you choose the first mode, the program will only select specified pages and save to separate PDF files. For instance, you have a 20-page PDF source and set to extract “5,7,10-15,19″ pages. After such splitting you will get 4 PDF files that contain: 5th, 7th, 10th – 15th and 19th page accordingly.
When you split files by bookmarks, the program will create a PDF file for each bookmarked section of the source files. And splitting by blank pages implies that each fragment of the original document between two blank pages will be extracted into a separate PDF.
Using PDF Splitter you can also divide original PDF document into parts of specific number of pages. For instance, the program can combine every 2 pages into a separate file.
With PDF Splitter you will be able to share student book parts in PDF format without need to share paper copies. Try this tool to see all its advantages in action.

Blank pages are a nuisance when you deal with multi-page TIFF or PDF files. They contain no data but cause the wrong page count. Besides they take the space, which is essential when you have thousands of files. Tiff Pdf Cleaner easily detects and deletes blank pages from files. But it can do a lot more!
Did you know that Tiff Pdf Cleaner can save blank pages to TIFF or PDF files? This way you can later check if they are really blank manually. It will take you few seconds to look though but you may be sure no important data is lost.
Besides, Tiff Pdf Cleaner can add a page number to the rest of the pages. Or a date. Or any text you like. It can be a watermark to prevent unauthorized use or your company’s slogan. Lawyers will appreciate this option as now they can easily add notes like Confidential or For Attorney’s Eyes Only to their files.
We have created several articles describing all the additional options of Tiff PDF Cleaner. Take a look at them to get the most out of the program:

When you scan different papers and save them together into one multipage Tiff, you get a huge file with blank pages between documents. You can have this Tiff split by blank pages
(each document saved in separate file). It will be much simpler to view and edit information in such a way. TiffPdfCleaner can do this within one click. There is no need in complex image editors, making a new file for each document manually, etc. Just check off the proper option and that’s all!
In multipage Tiff faxes you may also have the problem of blank pages. However even blank fax pages contain some info in headers and footers (corporate logo, contacts, etc.). That is why common programs will not detect them as blank. But TiffPdfCleaner is smart enough to recognize them. Here is how to split Tiff by blank pages
• Open the program and find Tiff source file using navigation tab
• Check it in the file list
• Click on ‘Tiff’ icon
• In the first tab of settings wizard check option “Split by blank page”
• Specify folder for saving separated files and name template
• In ‘Workspace’ tab specify the page area for analysis
• Press Start!
Additionally you can setup tolerance for detecting blank pages. To make sure that no important info is removed by deleting blank pages, you can set the program to save them in either PDF of Tiff format. You can experiment with tolerance and workspace with no risk of data loss.
To save memory space a compression should be applied. 10 compression types are available in this Tiff splitter. If you are not sure which is suitable, the program can automatically define the best way of compression for each file part.
It’s easy to divide huge Tiff files to parts and clean them from empty pages with TiffPdfCleaner. Try it for free.
