like I have a PDF document with like 10 pages in and I need to save 3 and scrap the rest
what do I do?
and then press Command+Delete
What button is that?
a) a mac
b) fancypants adobe software
i'm guessing you have neither.
download pdf sam. sorted.
the native Preview app allows you to edit (as in insert and delete) pages.
I view PDFs with Foxit. Cheers.
but... pdf sam
then just scan back in the three pages you need
Takes long though
and doesn't take that long
perhaps best not to ask questions.
to avoid using PDF Jim or whatever it's called.
i'd genuinely rather you didn't
voila! 3-paged pdf
Basically theres like 10 pages and 3 need to be saved together, 4 saved together and then the rest saved together so i dont know
but I hate TheWza.
And I don't care.
pdf sam = a sensible answer to the question.
print it all out and re-scan it is not.
send a possibly sensitive business doc(?) off to a random third party website is better, but not great.
not everywhere has full whack acrobat, or whatever it's called. if meo has it (or the basic adobe stuff does it these days), but hasn't already sussed the simple answer given, then meh.
but just...fucking hell man.
and then click on a page and press ctrl + a to select all of it.
the copy this by pressing ctrl and c and paste it (by pressing ctrl v) onto a word doc or something.
this sounds long winded but will take you about 30 seconds i reckon
Click 'Document' on the top menu bar, select 'extract pages', tick the 'extract as seperate files' box, press 'OK'. There.
I thought everything had Acrobat. My trousers have Acrobat. How are you looking at pdfs?
in the company that makes pdf sam
it's FOSS, not proprietary, so you could legitimately take the code and punt it on as robluvsnic's mega pdf app if you wanted to.
I'm just gonna print them off and scan them back in.
i.e. create a PDF of the PDF (but one with just the pages you actually want).
swirl that one round the old noggin.
