Creating a new Soda PDF account comes with a FREE 7-day trial to our entire suite of PDF tools and services, allowing you to get a taste of all of our document management solutions.
Once you’ve created an account and have logged into Soda PDF via our Online application, here’s how to split PDFs if you’re a MAC user:
Upload the PDF document you want to split
Now that we’ve created an account and/or have logged into our Soda PDF account, the next step is to open a document.
There are a couple of ways to open a PDF document using Soda PDF Online. First, from the main screen, simply click Open.
You will then see your Finder window open allowing you to search your MAC computer for the PDF document you wish to split.
Alternatively, if you wish to open a document from Google Drive or another cloud storage service, simply click on the ellipsis icon in the top left corner of the application. The following window will appear:
Select to upload the document via your Computer or Google Drive or simply click Add a Place to connect your other cloud storage services such as Box or Dropbox.
Once you’ve chosen the file, Soda PDF will automatically load the document.
Click on the CONVERT feature
Once your document has been loaded into Soda PDF Online, simply click on the CONVERT feature from the main toolbar at the top of the application:
The CONVERT feature contains all of the conversion tools you need to turn your PDF document into another format or to convert the pages of your document into new files.
As you can see, you can convert from PDF, export your PDF document as another file format such as MS Office files like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and even as an image, or you can compress or split your document.
Click on the Split tool from these convert tools.
Select the Split tool
Once you’ve clicked on the Split tool from the CONVERT feature, the following window will appear:
You can select to split All the pages from your opened PDF document, or you can select from a Range of pages within your document to split.
How to split your PDF into pages
Depending on your specific document goal, you might want to split the entire document or perhaps just a few pages and turn them into new PDFs.
Soda PDF Online provides you with two easy-to-use options for splitting your PDF document:
Choose ALL if you wish to split your entire document into several new PDFs:
Simply click on All then choose the number of pages you wish each file to be split into. You can also select when to start the File label starting at which page number too.
Once you’ve selected the number of files you wish to split these pages into, simply click the SPLIT button. You can also CANCEL at any time too.
Want to split only a certain page or perhaps a range of pages from your existing PDF document? No problem! Simply click Range (which is selected by default):
You can then enter the page numbers or the range of pages you wish to split from your document. Just like we saw with the All option, you can also determine when the file labelling should begin too.
Once you’ve selected your range of pages, simply click SPLIT. Soda PDF Online will then automatically begin to split the pages you’ve selected into new PDF documents.
Download your split document
Once you’ve clicked SPLIT, Soda PDF Online will only take a few seconds to process the pages you wish to split from your existing PDF document. A green ribbon will appear at the bottom of the application once successfully processed:
Your newly split document will appear as a ZIP file in the download tray at the bottom of your web browser. Check your Downloads folder to find the newly split file.
And that’s it, you’ve successfully split a PDF online directly from your web browser using Soda PDF Online! What else can Soda PDF Online do to help you push your documents forward? We’re glad you asked!
