Wow, this was just what I needed. Great that you explain in a simple way how to realise the result. The first time I used your download-file. Now I can make an automater-file myself. So far though it has required me to bring my Mac around with me to split things, is there a way you can help me to adapt this to windows Actions. If there were a way to do this in Automator, I would love to know…. Open original pdf 2. Deep thanks from a non-tech guy whose heart sank at the prospect of having to split out a full deck of playing card templates supplied as one pdf by the printer ….
Thanks so much for uploading the instructions, screenshots, and downloadable service! I was so excited when I followed the directions and it worked! Downloaded your link for splitting PDFs but once it displayed the split and I open document there was no text. Can you assist? Thanks Brooks for an excellent tutorial and a great Applescript-Automator Service. I was in a real bind trying to burst a number of PDF documents to put their contents into another document as captioned figures. Splitting the documents by hand was not only tiresome, but also prone to error.
So your solution was just what I needed and when I needed it.
Most appreciated. Really well done! Thank you so much for sharing this is a life saver! This made my work so much easier. Now i just need to rename each file no nee to drag out individually.

Any idea how to alter to only extract page 1 of a multipage pdf? Hello Brooks, thank you so much for this! Though you wrote this a while ago ? Awesome job. Wow, Thanks so much! I tried to manually enter the AppleScript, then realized that you said to copy it.
My manual entry did not work although exactly the same. Your paste did! Thanks for this handy tool, it works great. I am using this to create individual files ultimately from a mail merge saved as one large pdf document.

Aya, thanks very much for all your efforts to find a solution for the problem of the apparently missing automator action in Mavericks. However, it turns out that this automator action creates Images as its name suggests and any previously searchable text in the PDF document is converted in the process.

This makes their further processing very difficult. Hazel, for example, cannot read the content of the split pages but could do so for the original, combined PDF document. I guess I have to look further for the automator action or venture into running scripts in shell in automator. Achim, sorry there was a mistake in the workflow I provided. To ensure text in the PDF will not be converted to an image you can use this workflow which is much simpler, requires only two actions.
Choose the output location and if you want the custom name to your files. Many thanks for sharing this will assist me in better understanding the AppleScript and services. So I created a simple workflow that worked as magic on pages PDF. When downloading your kindly provided workflow this action can also not be found and the workflow does not complete — this particular action is simply not on my Mac. Unfortunately, as the action name suggests, this automator action creates Images and any previously searchable text in the PDF document is converted in the process.
Seems I am little late using Mac. Recently migrated from Windows to Mac. The article helped like a Magic. Not finding words to Thank. Sometimes life is good to you. This is one of this moments! Plain and easy tutorial and works like a charme. Wow, amazing! Thank you so much, I had a file consisting of 52 individual documents and with your help I was able to split the file into Is there a way to then convert the single pdf pages into png files using this method?
You just…. Thank you for a great tutorial! I was also able to batch rename the files!

Thank you! I open the png and each image appears in the thumbnail view on the side. The option text is grey not selectable. If I cmdA all thumbnails select, but only the first page preview image responds as the output in onenote.
It would really save time. I feel I should point out exporting the multi page pdf to other image files such as jpg and tiff only gives one page of the document. Basically, the export only works on png. Great Tutorial! Defeats the purpose I know…. Would I have to tweak the code if I wanted to do this? What are you actually splitting? Thanks so much for that. I am useless at technology and you really made it easy to understand and it works a treat.
