I have a PDF document that is around 600 pages. I only need to use roughly 20 pages total from the document.

Is there a way to save those pages that I need into a separate PDF while still keeping them fillable?

I only have Adobe Reader and would rather not pay for a program to do this for me.

I believe an application called PDFsam might be what you are looking for - it's open source and free and is designed to both split and merge PDFs.

Thank you for the help. I downloaded the application, but when I add my file to be split, it says that there are 0 pages. Is there a help section for this? – Beth May 15 '12 at 14:56
