How to Extract Odd Pages or Even Pages from PDF

Imagine that you need to duplex-print a 200-page PDF file with a printing machine that doesn’t support duplex print mode. What are you going to do? What’s the most efficient way to finish this task? By manually inputting “1, 3, 5 …” and “2, 4, 6 …” to separatedly print odd pages and even pages will be too time-consuming. Also, it’s easy to make mistakes. But what if we can sort out the odd pages from the even pages before printing? Will it be much easier to duplex-print the large PDF file? Absolutely yes! We can finish the job within three steps. First of all, we print the odd pages, then revert the papers to the other side and finally print the even pages. Here comes the question: How to extract odd pages or even pages only from PDF?

Step 4.Confirm Output Path

On the bottom, you can customize the output path. Click button “Output Folder” and then click icon “…” to choose the folder that you want the extracted files to be saved in.

Note: Click “Advanced Settings” on the upper right, you can have further output settings, such as layout, OCR, security (password setting), and etc.

Step 5.Find the Converted Files

Click button “Convert”, all the pages you selected in Step 2 will be extracted to the output folder you customized in Step 4.

In other words, If you choose "All odd pages" in Step 2, you will extract odd pages only from the PDF. Similarly, if you choose "All even pages", all the pages extracted from the PDF will be even pages only.

Now that you've learnt to separatedly extract the odd pages and even pages from PDF, you can easily duplex-print a large PDF file even with a printing machine that doesn’t support duplex print mode.
