Way 1. Split a Word Document with Multiple Pages into Multiple PDFs by Splitting in "Organize Pages"

Sometimes you have a Word document with many pages that needs to be split into multiple PDFs. For example, if you have a long report for work, but need to email different sections to different departments, then you can follow the steps below to split your multi-page Word document into multiple PDFs.

Step 1 - Open Word Document in UPDF

To open your Word document in UPDF, drag and drop it into the "Open File" box.

Step 2 - Organize Pages

On the left menu of UPDF, select "Organize Pages". Then select "Split" from the top menu. You can choose how many pages you would like each of the new PDFs to be. For example, if you want each page of the Word document to be its own PDF, then you will select 1. Click "Split".

Step 3: Save the PDF

Select the folder location where you want to save your split PDFs, then click "Save". A new window will automatically open with the new PDF files.

Way 2. Split a Word Document with One Single Page into Multiple PDFs by Splitting in "Crop Pages"

You may have a one-page Word document that you need to split into several PDFs. This can be the case if you're working on a brochure or certificate in Word that needs to be divided into multiple parts. In UPDF, you can use the "Crop Pages" tool to complete this task. Follow the directions below.

Step 1 - Open Word Document in UPDF

Drag and drop your Word file into the "Open File" box.

Step 2 - Crop Pages

From the left side, click "Crop Pages". Then, select the "Split" tool. Now you can click on the add vertical split line or add horizontal line to split the page. You can also choose how you would like the split lines to be divided by dragging the line after adding. When you're satisfied with how the page is split, click "Split".

Step 3 - Save the PDF

After splitting the page, the new individual parts will automatically open in UPDF, and you can edit, annotate, or rearrange them. Click on "Save as Other" to save your PDF.

Way 3. Split a Word Document into Multiple PDFs by Extracting

If you need to split a Word document into multiple PDFs and want to extract non-continuous pages, then you can follow this method. For example, if you have a document that requires one person's signature on odd pages and another person's signature on even pages, then this is a good method for you.

Step 1 - Open Word Document in UPDF

Drag and drop your Word document into the "Open File" area in UPDF.

Step 2 - Select Odd Pages

On the left side, click "Organize Pages" > "Select Pages". You can choose different pages, including odd pages, even pages, or a specific page range. First, we'll select odd pages.

Step 3 - Save Odd Pages PDF

Click "Extract" and then decide what location to save your extracted PDF, and click "Save". When you're done, the new PDF with only the odd pages will open in a new window in UPDF.

Step 4 - Select Even Pages

Go back to your original document tab in UPDF, and now we'll select the even pages. Click "Select Pages" > "Even Pages".

Step 5 - Save Even Pages PDF

Click "Extract" and then select a location to save your PDF. When you click "Save", the even pages PDF will open in a new window in UPDF. From here, you can save all of your PDFs by clicking "Save as Other" and selecting your preferred save method.

Way 4. Split a Word Document into Multiple PDFs by Printing

You can also split a Word document into multiple PDFs by using the Print function in UPDF. This is useful if you only want to turn a couple of pages from a multipage Word document into their own PDFs. You can follow the steps below for this.

Step 1 - Open Word Document in UPDF

Drag and drop your Word document into the "Open File" box in UPDF.

Step 2 - Open Print Settings

Go to "File" > "Print" to open the print settings. At the top, make sure you have "Microsoft Print to PDF" selected, and then in the "Pages to Print" area, select "Custom" and then choose the page that you want to print to PDF. Then click "Print".

Step 3 - Print Another Page

You can then go back to "Print" and choose another page to print to PDF. Do this as many times as you need to convert individual pages from a Word document into PDFs.

UPDF has many other features. You can use UPDF's OCR feature to convert image files with text into editable text. UPDF also has powerful AI features that you can use to chat with your PDF, summarize content, and generate new ideas.
