Extract pages from a pdf document


Is there a software available that will let me extract/insert pages in a pdf document the way one can do in Adobe Acrobat in Windows.

The only program I know of that can edit PDF files under Linux is KOffice. It doesn't always get the formatting exactly right, but I think it's the best you can do.

Google up 'PDF Merge and Split' and 'PDF Toolkit'. Both claim to be able to split out pages.

I know it's an old topic, still hope my answer can help others.
Except use Adobe Acrobat, some code sample also can do it.
Here's a PDF page extraction guide, I see code sample of Extract PDF Pages and Save into a New PDF File on it, it will be helpful.

PDF Split and Merge (pdfsam) is available for linux. I know Debian has it in the repositories, but have never used it.

It would be nice if you would share that with us!

It is also better to open a new thread rather than waking up a 9 year old corpse as a first post!

And welcome to LQ!

I use the command-line tool pdftk for extraction, insertion, rearrangement, etc and it's great.

Under Ubuntu 14.04, I use PDF-Shuffler, available from the Software Center. I don't know about other distros. SC references .

Edit (additional info):

PDF-Shuffler runs with a GUI that allows reading of multiple contiguously listed files (mark file range with shift-click. ctrl-click is not an option for multiple files. For randomly located files, use multiple reads.). It displays thumbnails of the files that were read, which can be rearranged, rotated, cropped, and deleted before saving to another PDF.
