This is Darius from the rabbit pad calm and in this video I'm going to show you how you can separate or extract pages in a PDF or from a PDF using Apple's preview app which is the default application on a Mac for viewing PDFs please be sure to hit that subscribe button if you would like to see more videos from me in the future so on my screen here I have Apple's preview opened and I have a five page document now let's suppose that you have a very large PDF maybe it's a workbook or something and you only need two or three pages from that document here is how you can separate the pages that you need from the huge document you may be viewing one way to do this is to click the page that you want and drag it to your desktop and now that page is automatically separated from the rest in a new document so I'm going to open this and then I'm going to pull over the window from my other monitor and now you have a one-page PDF with just the page that you extracted you can also do this with more than one page by selecting both pages that you want and then dragging that to the desktop and so now I have the two pages that I selected in a PDF by itself another way to do this is to copy the pages that you want so I'm going to select the page and then I'm going to go to edit at the top and then select copy and of course you can use keyboard commands as well and then I'm going to go to the file menu and select new from clipboard and as you can see if you press the keyboard shortcut you'll get the same result and now I'm going to have a document with just that page by itself you can also select pages that aren't necessarily next to each other in the document that way as well so now I'm going to select page 1 and page 3 and then I'm going to copy that and then I'm going to select new from clipboard and as you can see I have the first page and then I have the second page which happens to have a tube there so that is how you can separate or extract pages from a PDF using Apple's preview app in Mac OS 10.

How can I convert a PDF to Word?
There is no good way to use Microsoft Word to edit PDFs. Microsoft Word is used for authoring an original document not modifying a portable document. True Word can import some data from a PDF. That feature is useful when you are authoring a new document and wish to salvage data from a PDF to prevent time spent entering data. In that case it is best to import the PDF into a file by itself and strip it of formatting then copy and paste it into your pre-formatted document as Normal .
