How to Split PDF Files

How to Split PDF Files

First, transfer a file to GoodReader (see: How To Import Files & Folders), then tap a file name to open it.
GoodReader allows to split a PDF file into two:

  • Press the Pages button to bring up the Page Management window.

  • Press the Split button to add pages from one or more PDF files.
  • Drag the page splitting marker to the desired position, then press the Split Here button on the marker.
  • GoodReader creates two new files with parts of the original file. The original file is left intact. You can delete it later if no longer needed.

I work as a field layout-line & grade for concrete/steel building construction. It is very handy to use cause I can link this to my Dropbox server and download my blueprints there. In which, when they are changes in drawings I just sync it every morning and take out to the field. No need for internet to see my layouts, etc. on this.

The only thing that I think needs to be fix is when I look at a JPEG file. The screen gets stuck. I can't tap and hold to pull up the main menu to go back to look at other files. It just freezes; to which I always got to exit Good Reader and restart it.

But other than that this a very good app to use to store your files and always have it with you where ever you go.
