I’m a big believer in efficiency and finding tools to make mundane administrative tasks easier. Its why I love technology, why I wanted to become a programmer, etc. So this weekend at the reThinking Literacy conference when we needed to create individual PDF’s of a mail merged pages document of presenter certificates I couldn’t stomach manually splitting the PDF. There HAD to be abetter way.
Turns out there was – the software is called A-PDF and it makes splitting a PDF based on rules in the content very easily. After setting up the rule which took no more than 5 minutes I was able to create more than 100 individual PDF’s all with the correct unique file name.
The software has tons of other features too that if you needed would be quite useful like being able to automatically split based on folder detection, etc.
Check it out!
