Can I apply a rule to cut PDF pages in batches by using A-PDF Page Cut?

Return KB main page


I have a batch of PDF files whose pages are composed of 4 parts, and I need to cut each page into 4 pieces. I know it's easy to do that by adding a vertical cutting line and a horizontal cutting line, but it's quite troublesome to repeat this work one after another PDF file. Is it possible to use a fixed cutting rule if I use Batch Cut mode? And if yes, how can I do that?


Yes, A-PDF Page Cut allows you to apply a pre-set cutting rule while you are cutting a batch of PDF files, which can save you a lot of time and trouble. You just need to customize a rule that you want to apply to other projects and export it as a local file; and then when you need it, simply import this cutting rule. You can refer to below steps on how to apply a cutting rule in Batch Cut mode.

Step 1: Customize Rule

After you start A-PDF Page Cut, you can import a PDF or open the Demo. Then you can add cutting lines to a selected PDF page, and apply to all the other pages.
