PDF Actions (so far only splitting double pages)

Recommended Posts

PDF Split (File Action)

Split a two-page scanned PDF into two separate pages. Accepts multiple files.

When used on a file original.pdf, it creates original-split.pdf in the same location.




All the action is in splitPDF.py which is a very slightly tweaked version of a script by Hanspeter Schmid posted here.

Built with PyPDF2.

Not as versatile as Skimmer : PDF actions for Skim was, but working and hopefully more future-proof.

Thank you for this!

I used to use the excellent Skimmer workflow, available through these forums - but unfortunately Sierra seems(?) to have broken it. Stumbled across yours, and works a charm!

Great workflow! Works delightfully. Have a huge amount of pdfs and used to split and trim them with Skimmer. Have tried a number of options since the latter broke (acrobat pro and pdfsam, briss etc.) but your's does one thing and that very effectively. Thanks for this.
