I have a very large (18+ megabytes) file.  How do I split it into two or more files?  I will be using Acrobat DC.

Hi TGH8,

 

There might be a more slick way but I'd just open the file and then select the "Organize Pages" Tool. Then I'd select the first (?) 100 pages and tap the Extract button. There's an option with that to "Delete Pages after Extraction." 

 

Then rince, wash, & repeat. 

 

Don't forget to rename the files as you Extract with Part 1, Part 2, etc.

 

Good luck!
