Calling all computer nerds - extract PDF pages

Postby rudder » Wed Sep 04, 2013 4:36 pm

What recommendations do you have for a free, windows compatible program that can easily extract a selection of pages from a pdf document?

I want to pull individual pages from an ESL ebook and be able to send them to students for homework assignments. I have a typesetting program, Lyx, that can handle this sort of thing, but it takes way too long.

instead of extracting them why not screenshot the pages and put them in a word document to make a new pdf.

I use PDFILL PDF Tools. It is not free...about USD20 I think...but it is very good. It lets me black over sections that I do not want people to see for when I have been publishing court documents on the web etc. It does splitting and joining of PDFS as well.

It has other functions but those are the two I use most....a very good tool.

Hi there
I have googled a code for PDF page extracting:
/// <summary>
/// two pdf documents are available, and we want combine some pages of document 1 and some pages of document 2 to form a new pdf document
/// </summary>
/// <returns></returns>
public void ExtractPagesToFormNewDocument(String filePath1, String filePath2, List<int> pageList1, List<int> pageList2, String destnPath)
{
// two temporary strings to store the extracted documents file paths
String tmpFilePath1 = @"c:\tmpFile1";
String tmpFilePath2 = @"c:\tmpFile2";
PDF Extract Pages FromDocument(filePath1, pageList1, tmpFilePath1);
PDFDocument.ExtractPagesFromDocument(filePath2, pageList2, tmpFilePath2);
List<String> docPathList = new List<string>();
docPathList.Add(tmpFilePath1);
docPathList.Add(tmpFilePath2);
PDFDocument.Combine(docPathList, destnPath);
But it can not work effectively.What's wrong with my code?
Thanks for any suggestions.

1. Have you created an instance of PDFDocument in memory stack? At which scope has it been declared?
2. This looks like C# code - am I correct?
3. Is PDFDocument an instance of a 3rd party managed code (.NET) assembly?
4. Have you called the "ExtractPagesToFormNewDocument" function from another file? Your code is very incomplete thus far.
5. That "[url...." doesn't look right. Where's the subroutine code for "FromDocument"??
