# Saving part of a PDF file only

I have a pdf file and I need to save to disk only part of it, not the whole document. Does anyone know how to do that?

I have the LaTeX file and I can of course LaTeX only part of the file but the problem is that the references in the part that I LaTeX are then not working since they refer to equations that have been commented out. So need to LaTeX the whole thing to get the references right. But I need to save only part of the file. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, we can only save an entire PDF document, not just part of it.

Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance

Just google "divide pdf file". There are lots of freeware programs that will let you do it.

When finding one for me, I used "pdf editor" and also found an online editor other than the divider.

Just a quick question. At one point I will have to edit a 400 pages long document. Will these programs handle such a large file?

Thanks again!

The size of the PDF shouldn't matter much. If PDF Editor has a problem, there are tons of other PDF editors out there... FoxIt, etc.
