2. Indicate Bookmark

Customize the bookmark and indicate the level to specify splitting. 

a. Bookmark Level

  • The bookmark tool will scan and identify the bookmarks available in your PDF file. Choose the level of bookmarks which will be followed for splitting.
  • You can also set a word that indicates its specific bookmark by encoding the keyword on the textbox.

For Example: If it contains the word “Chapter” the tool will recognize this as the bookmark and it will split the document from this page.

  • Add an extra page at the end of each set of documents after splitting by ticking (checking) the “Include extra page at the end.”
