Even though PDFs are perfect for presenting and preserving long documents, there are times when you will need to split them into smaller chunks. This is a convenient way of eliminating unwanted content, making smaller file sizes, and handling large files efficiently.
Split PDF to pages
Split PDF pages in half
To split your PDF file in half, repeat the process above. Open a PDF and from the Edit menu go to Split PDF file option. In the fields where you need to select the page numbers, make sure you type the first page and the page that will split your PDF in half.
When you click on Split button, you will get only the first half of the PDF but you will also have the original PDF file. If you want to have another half of your PDF extracted, follow the same steps but in the end, select the first page of the second half of your file and the last page of your PDF.

How the file is split?
For instance, if your file has 50 pages and you type pages 2,12,20 here how the file will be split:
The first split file will be only the pages up to first typed number. In this example, these are pages 1 and 2.
The second split file will be pages after the first typed number and until the second typed number. In this example, there will be pages from number 3 to 12.
The last split file contains the pages after the last typed number to the end of the document (from page 21 to 50).
