Short guide on how to extract pages from PDF files with PDFsam Basic
Select PDF files
Drag and drop the PDF files you want to extract pages from or click
Add to add files. Encrypted PDF files show a icon on their left, click on the lock icon and supply the unlock password.
Set what pages to extract from the selected PDF files. You can set them as comma separated numbers or page ranges, ex. 2,5,6-13,25.
Choose the location of the resulting PDF files.
Customize file names
Special keywords can be used as placeholders in the output file names and be replaced with dynamic values during the execution. An example can be
[FILENUMBER] to add an increasing counter value to the file name or
[TIMESTAMP] to add the current timestamp to the file name. Right click on the field to find all the available keywords.
Once all the options are properly set, click
Run to start the execution. If no error occurs, the progress bar will grow until it is fully colored and a friendly ding sound will tell you that your PDF files are ready.
