Auto-Splitting by Bookmark

Jun 21, 2013 12:44 PM



I work at a mortgage company.  Our imaging system's preferred format is tiff.  We receive loan closing documents in a PDF that has been bookmarked by document.  So, while the PDF itself might be 500 pages long, there are bookmarks where each document (note, mortgage, loan application) begins.


Does Adobe itself or via a plug-in have the ability to split a bookmarked document into those constituent parts,name them correctly, and save them as tiff?  Or if not the save-to tiff part, can it at least break it up into a series of correctly named DPFs?


And, can it do it in a batch process where it processes 100 files?

    Yes, Acrobat has the ability to split a PDF apart based on top-level bookmarks and if your bookmarks are the name that you want your filename to be then you're really in luck. The Split command is located under the Pages panel in Acrobat XI and can be applied on multiple PDFs.



    Under the Output Options button you can set the bookmark name for the filename.




    Once you have a folder of split PDFs, you can then use an Action to convert the PDFs to TIFF.
