Wait a few seconds ⏲️.

After that, our system will inform you that it is done splitting your PDF by size.

What happens to my PDF?

When choosing to split a PDF by size, our system creates a copy of your file, and the only thing that happens to the file is just creating new PDFs according to your size preference.

Here’s what happens when you split a PDF by size:

  • Your privacy is respected, and so, we delete the pre-splitting by size PDF file a few hours (at most) after the split process;
  • The new documents are available in your dashboard.

When splitting a PDF by size with SignHouse, you get 100% full control of the file. That’s why you’re able to re-edit, delete, share or private-share your documents.


Can you split a PDF without Adobe?


If you scroll up on the page where we explain with step-by-step instructions how to split a PDF, you will be able to split a PDF without using Adobe.

On that very page, you can:

  1. Drag-and-drop the files into the upload box
  2. Choose where and how you want to split the PDF
  3. Click “Apply changes” → Download the file!

It takes a few seconds and only a few clicks.

Adobe, on the other hand, requires a download plus a few minutes.
