How do I remove some pages of a .pdf file? I tried some tips mentioned in different websites, but to no avail.

It would be helpful to mention what "tips" exactly you've tried so you don't get the same suggestions over again. – slhck Dec 11 '12 at 19:32

Use Chrome to view the PDF, hit print icon, set the page limit and save it as a new PDF (Option can be found under destination).

I've used PDF SAM (Split And Merge) ( ) numerous times and it works well.

It's a free Java app, so you will need Java installed. It allows PDFS to be extracted to single pages and then reattached back again.

Sejda is a new "Advanced Online Manipulation Tool" that has the ability to split a PDF document at the page number that you wish. It also has numerous other abilities:

To remove pages, use the Extract task. Select all page but the ones you wish removed, and click "Extract".

You can select multiple pages at once pressing SHIFT

You can use any PDF editor, or if you don't want to download/install anything big, use the command-line portable pdftk (PDF Toolkit). Just extract the EXE and DLL to the same directory as your PDF, then from the command prompt use a command similar to the following:

pdftk in.pdf cat 1-12 14-end output out.pdf

This will delete page 13 from the PDF. See the man(ual) and examples pages for more help/options, or just type pdftk --help.

Another option is to use a PDF printer (e.g. CutePDF ( ) )

"Print" your PDF to another PDF making sure to choose only the pages you want from the print dialog.

The free foxit reader comes with a pdf printer that allows you to print (ranges of) pages to a pdf file. And it's a great alternative to Adobe Reader.
