How To Save a Single Page of a PDF
There are a number of ways to save a single page of a PDF, but we’ll focus on the most common ones so that you can do it quickly and easily regardless of the device you’re using.
Note: This method necessitates the use of a PDF editing program. You already have one if you use a Mac, in the form of Preview. Microsoft Word, as well as Google Chrome, will work. Alternatively, there is a slew of free PDF editors to choose from.
1. Launch the PDF file in your PDF editor.
Note: In our screenshots, we’re using MacOS’s Preview, but the steps are very similar in other apps.
2. Tap File > Print.
3. Select the page you’d like to download from the PDF file.
4. Tap PDF > Save As PDF.
Tip: Some programs may ask you to select from a list of available printers and choose PDF instead of a physical device.
5. Locate the position to save the file.
6. Tap Save.
7. Your one page PDF has been moved to a new folder.

Limitations to Saving One Page of a PDF
There are some limitations to splitting up a PDF. What you need to know is as follows:
These methods won’t work on a read-only PDF. You can’t edit a PDF file that has been set to Read-Only mode. That means you won’t be able to divide it into separate pages. You’ll need to either edit it yourself or ask the file’s creator to make the necessary changes.
Splitting up a PDF won’t circumvent password protection. Do you have a PDF that is password protected? To modify the file and divide it appropriately, you’ll need to know the password.
Get permission from the owner of the PDF. Because PDFs are often significant documents, it’s a good idea to get permission from the PDF’s creator before dividing it apart. It’s not required in every situation, but it’s just good manners.
