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.

I would recommend the free CutePDF - cutepdf.com –  Brandon Kreisel Jul 9 '12 at 13:42

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.

Though identical to your answer to the duplicate question, I must confess that I am surprised how well crafted the UI for these steps is crafted. It feels en par with commercial tools like Adobe Acrobat, at least for only this task. –  ojdo Jun 3 at 12:50

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

http://multi-convert.com/split-pdf

Put start and end pages + number of the pages in the single file.

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

Another free online tool that does what you are asking:

Extract PDF pages: http://www.sejda.com/extract-pdf-pages

Upload the file, specify the page ranges that you want to extract to a separate file (10-20, 22-) and click "Split".

Its an online service, nothing to install.

There's a command line tool as well, if you prefer that: Sejda PDF command line tool

./bin/sejda-console extractpages -f /input/file.pdf --pageSelection 4-10,20- -o /outputDir

Better than the printer solution since this won't change/alter the original PDF pages.

Thanks for including the disclaimer. Just FYI, site standards have changed a bit since this question was posted 3 years ago. You could improve your answer, possibly even attract upvotes, if you expand it to include the procedure to accomplish the solution. That also tends to attract people to try your tool because it overcomes the hurdle of anticipating having to figure out how to use it. –  fixer1234 Jun 16 at 14:49
    
BTW, consider answering questions besides ones for which Sejda is an answer. Users who contribute with a variety of questions and answers tend to get a lot of leeway to occasionally post answers that recommend their own tools. If all of your answers just recommend your own stuff, it may be viewed as overly promotional, even if the answers, themselves, are high quality. Just a heads up. –  fixer1234 Jun 16 at 15:06
    
Edi: As @fixer1234 said, promoting your own product overly so tends to look like spam and is frowned upon. Please refrain from posting too much about your own product and consider contributing in some other ways as well. –  studiohack Jun 16 at 15:36
