If you drag a PDF to the Win2PDF Desktop icon, or select a PDF from the open window when launching the Win2PDF Desktop application, the following options will be displayed under the "Pages" menu:

Selecting "Split Pages..." will open the following window:

 

Win2PDF Desktop - Split Pages

Win2PDF Desktop - Split Pages

 

The split files are placed in the folder specified by the "Output Folder".

 

The "Split At" options are:

 

Every Page - each page is saved to a separate file with the format filename.1.pdf, filename.2.pdf, filename.3.pdf, etc.

Every Even Pages - each 2 pages is saved to a separate file with the format  filename.1.pdf, filename.3.pdf, filename.5.pdf, etc.

Every Odd Pages - each 2 pages is saved to a separate file with the format filename.1.pdf, filename.2.pdf, filename.4.pdf, etc. Useful for documents with a separate cover page.

Every N Pages - each N pages is saved to a separate file with the format filename.1.pdf, filename.N+1.pdf, etc.

Before Search - split pages before the text specified in the search box is encountered.

After Search - split pages after the text specified in the search box is encountered.

 

The "Before Search" and "After Search" options are useful if you want to split a PDF into variable length PDFs based on the content of the PDF.

 

This is also available using the SPLITPAGES command line, SPLITPAGESBEFORESEARCH command line, and SPLITPAGESAFTERSEARCH command line.
