In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to use Google Chrome to extract pages from a PDF document and add them to a separate PDF file.
This is especially useful when you only need to convert a few pages of a very large document with our PDF to Excel converter, or if you want to reduce the size of the PDF for some other purpose.
In this example, I'll extract pages from a PDF version of Nestlé Group's Consolidated Financial Statements for 2016.
The process I'll be illustrating is quite similar for other web browsers, including Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer, and is identical in Opera.
Find your PDF document in Windows Explorer, then right-click on it and
Open With -> Google Chrome.
Once your PDF is open in Chrome, click the Print icon in top right hand side of the window.
When the Print dialogue appears, click
Change in the
On the next screen, select
Save as PDF.
NB: You can also use
Microsoft Print to PDF if it’s available,
Save as PDF is a bit quicker.
Enter the page numbers you want to extract in the highlighted text box.
As an example, if you want pages 8 to 10, you would enter
Or, if you want pages 12 and 14, you would enter
Now, if you want to be a total maverick, you could combine the
8-10, 12, 14. This would give you pages 8, 9, 10, 12 and 14 in one PDF document.
Save, and you’ll be asked to give your new PDF a name, and to choose a folder for it to be saved to.
Congratulations, you’re done! You can now convert your PDF to Excel.
