Getting every page of source PDF in separate file

Extracting specific pages from the source document (preset page numbers)

Get original file split by bookmarks

Split PDF sources by blank pages

Making a PDF document for every 2,3 or other number of source pages

The conversion command contains the same parameters: source files location, location for future split parts, split method and optional parameters. Optional parameters include setting file name template, deleting originals after splitting, etc. In order to split PDF via command line you will need to send this command to a server script. File processing is performed in a silent mode, and at the end of the process you are given with split documents in PDF format.

PDF SplitterX can become a part of your own applications where PDF splitting option is required. ActiveX technology supported by the program helps to adapt the initial script for various purposes.
