How to switch from spread to single-page?

Post by flipcreator » Wed May 09, 2012 8:03 pm

With your PDF SDK, is there a way to convert a PDF from two page spread to single pages?

Like the following PDF

Is there a trick to convert this PDF with spreads to 8 pages instead of 5? I can't find any functions from your SDK can do that. Hopefully you can help.

There is no simple way to split those pages with the SDK since they are really just large single pages. You could attempt to have a go at it using the low level PDF structure manipulation functions, but this will require good knowledge of the PDF format, and you may have to deal with splitting images into two parts yourself.
