I have downloaded a 1-page pdf that is 8 x 11 and it really is 2 pages. It is in book style. Is there a way in Acrobat to change the pdf from 2 pages on one page to 2 separate pages?
Thank you all for your help!

Thank you so much. I have the Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. I am unsure how to work that solution into this program on a Mac. I am afraid to mess things up in the folders and I do not see some of the folders the author was speaking of.
You are actually talking to the author
The article was written a few years ago, and with Acrobat DC, Adobe changed the user interface dramatically. You can still import the sequence and run it, but the process is slightly different. I just ran through the steps on a Mac using Sierra, so chances are what you will see is pretty close: On the page I linked to are two links to sequences, one for Acrobat X, the second one for Acrobat XI. Right-click or two-finger-tap on Acrobat XI link and save the file to your computer. The file will be saved with a .xml extension, which is wrong (Safari is trying to be smart about the type of file, but does get it wrong in this instance). You will have to rename the file from SplitPages.sequ.xml to SplitPages.sequ. You should see the icon for the file change when you do that. Now you can double-click on the file, and Acrobat will ask you if you want to import it. You have to click "Yes" or "OK" on a couple more confirmation screens. Then the Action should be installed in your copy of Acrobat. To use it, you will have to open up the Action Wizard. Just type "Action" in the tool search field at the top of the Tools area and then select to run an Action. Select the Action you just imported ("Split Pages"), select the files you want to apply the action to and run it.
Oh my gosh! You ROCK! Thank you so much! You are my hero!
Health, Happiness & Blessings!
I just stumbled across this thread after doing a search. Thank you so much for this. What a time saver!
