Frequently Asked Questions

How do I split pages in PDF into separate PDF documents?

The following command-line will split 'in.pdf' into separate PDF documents:

pagemaster -s in.pdf

Can I split PDF based on bookmarks?

Split 'in.pdf' based on the destinations of the root bookmarks (usually chapters etc.):

pagemaster -s --bybookmarks 1 in.pdf

Does PDF PageMaster have any dependencies on third party components/software?

PDF PageMaster is a completely stand-alone application and it does not include any dependencies on third-party components or software.

What is the difference between PDF SDK and PDF PageMaster?

PDF PageMaster is based on PDF SDK, Apryse's own core PDF programming technology. Our PDF SDK is a comprehensive developer library for PDF creation, manipulation and rendering, offered on a wide range of platforms and programming environments. If you require functionality for integration in your own applications beyond that which is provided as part of PDF PageMaster, or need more flexibility in implementing the required functionality, please contact a Apryse representative.

The main distinction between the two components is that PDF PageMaster is a specialized tool for simple PDF manipulations such as page splitting and merging, whereas PDF SDK is a general purpose Software Development Toolkit (SDK) that can be used to implement any type of manipulation on PDF documents (including splitting and merging) as well as other type of PDF functionality.

The advantage of PDF PageMaster is that it is very simple to use and that it doesn't require much experience with PDF format or general programming. At the same time PDF PageMaster does not include all of the features and options that are available in PDF SDK.

Can I integrate PDF PageMaster with my client/server application?

PDF PageMaster has a simple-to-use CLI that can be easily integrated into third-party client and server-based applications. The CLI is available as a plain executable and can be easily accessed from any programming language (including C#, VB.NET, C/C++, Java, VB6, Perl, Python, Ruby, Delphi, etc).
