    Some PDF help required..... Please!

    Right.... i have a lot of documents that i need to scan and convert to pdf. the only option i can see at the minute is scanning them individually, which would take ages! the photocopier at work has a function of scanning to pdf format and also has an auto-loading tray. the only problem with this is that the photocopier will save all the pages in one document. i however need each page to have its own .pdf.

    is there program which will automatically separate a multipage document into a number of single page ones?

    not sure if it would work but could try CutePDF, free download. When ready think you have to go to print and select the PDF writer as the printer and think you can do pages from 1-12 etc?

    not sure what your understanding what i mean. i have over a 100 sheets of paper that need to be scanned into over a 100 seperate pdfs. i can get them into one 100 page pdf. fairly quickly, i was just wondering whether there was a program which would split the 100 page document into 100 one page documents

    Can you save them as a word document? Then convert them to PDF using the CutePDF method

    i can print to pdf from adobe (or even exctract one page at a time from a pdf file), it would still be quite a laborious task though, i guess i was just hoping there was a quicker method.

    that is unless your saying cutepdf is able to print a multiple page document to multiple single page files automaitcally.

    what i think you are saying is print page 1 to pdf, then page 2 to pdf and so on.

    this is what i will have to do i was hoping there was a simpler (read less time consuming) method

    that one is free via torrents. ;-)

    or google is your friend.

    if you want it automatically it will be difficult. It has to be the firmware of the scanner (Canon MP navigator for example). as far as i see it, you have to split the pdf manually using PDF tool software.

    I always like PDFill free tool. it can do many thinks: - split files, reorder pages, add watermark, convert image to pdf and convert pdf to image.

    if im not wrong, you can scan the docs into individual images and, using PDFill tool, convert them to individual pdfs

    try it. Download free at
