How to split one long page into multiple pages?

I scanned a document that is 9" by 36" and it is saved as one page. Is there a way to automatically split the one page into multiple pages (for purpose of printing, so instead of printing a zoomed out column of the whole document it will print full page sections)?

I know I could copy the page multiple times and crop each one, but I was wondering if there is an easier way to do this.

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that.

 

Please go through the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/print-posters-banners-acrobat-reader.html and see if that works for you.

Note: Steps are the same for Acrobat DC new version.

 

Regards

Amal

Hi,

Here is an adaptation of a script I wrote some times ago:

var theFormat=["US Letter",612,792,"–",612,792*3];
var nbPages=this.numPages;
for (var p=0; p<nbPages; p++) {
	this.newPage(p+nbPages,theFormat[4],theFormat[5]);
	this.addWatermarkFromFile({
		cDIPath: this.path,
		nSourcePage: p,
		nStart: p+nbPages,
		nScale: -1,
	});
}
this.deletePages(0,nbPages-1);
var thePath=this.path.replace(/.pdf$/i," (Splited in "+theFormat[0]+" Format).pdf");
this.saveAs({
	cPath: thePath,
	bCopy: true,
});
for (var p=0; p<nbPages; p++) {
	for (i=0; i<3; i++) {
		this.newPage(p+nbPages+i,theFormat[1],theFormat[2]);
		this.addWatermarkFromFile({
			cDIPath: thePath,
			nSourcePage: p,
			nStart: p+nbPages+i,
			nVertAlign: app.constants.align.top,
			nVertValue: theFormat[2]*i,
		});
	}
}
this.deletePages(0,nbPages-1);
this.saveAs({cPath: thePath});

Copy this script in the empt console window, then select all the text and press the ENTER key of the numerical panel.

That should fit your scan in a 3-page US letter sheet format.
