Acrobat Reader allow us to easily save a copy of the PDF document. How can I save only from page 5 to 10 without purchasing a PDF editing tool?

You can send page 5 to 10 to a PDF-printer in such a case. Installing a printer that can print to pdf is freeware, and can be done with little loss.

There are several posibilities:

  1. You can use the freeware pdftk. It's an command line program that can extract pages from existing PDF pages and save then again as PDF. There are also several GUI base tools available that base on pdftk.
  2. PDF split and merge
  3. Furthermore there is even an free online service for extracting PDF pages.

Here is free tool that can do exactly what you are asking :

If you install pdftk you can do it with the command pdftk cat. The syntax is weird though, so copy carefully:

pdftk in.pdf cat 2-20 output out.pdf
