They would be appx 20 inches deep afterwards. This is one pdf page 100 inches deep. Is there any way to break the large pdf into 5 smaller pdfs in Acrobat. I can do this very slowly by cropping, save as, revert, etc, etc.

 

There has got to be an easier way.

Found a better solution for long 1 page pdfs. PDFCutter in the Apple Store does a fast job, with the ability to manually choose depths of all pages so I don't scalp sentences or split paragraphs. This app works beautifully if you start w the GridCutter option. Then manually adjust each page depths if you want, or go with auto depths depending upon number of pdfs to split. Simply SAVE and instant pages. For MacOS.

Not the best option, but you can try printing it to the Adobe PDF printer using the Poster option, and then extract each page as its own file.

Add 4 copies of the page and crop the 5 pages. As final step save the document.
