If you ever need just a few pages out of a longer PDF, you can extract those pages and save them as a separate PDF. In the Page Thumbnails panel, under the Options, just choose Extract Pages. And I will show you two ways to select the pages. If I know I want pages from 30 to 35, I can just type the numbers in here of course. And then you have two options here worth considering. If you wanted to remove those pages from this document, you could check Delete Pages After Extracting. If for some reason you wanted each of those pages to be a separate PDF, you'd check Extract Pages As Separate Files. But I just want this as one group of pages.
So when I click OK, here is my file. At the moment it just exists in RAM and Acrobat has named it Pages From and then it's using the basic name of the PDF from which these pages were extracted. So, if I don't save it, I am going to lose it. But I want to show you the other method too. So I am not going to save this, but I am going to go back in and actually select the pages in the list of thumbnails that represent the pages that I want to extract. So I just navigate down to page 30, click on that, and then scroll on down and Shift+Click on page 35.
That's gong to select the range. Now if for some reason you wanted to pick a page that's not continuous with these pages, you can hold down the Ctrl key on Windows or you could hold down the Command key on the Mac. But in this case, I just want that page range from 30 to 35. So now when I go back into Extract Pages, it populates those fields based on the pages that I have selected in the Page Thumbnails panel, and I would have exactly the same result. So remember this in the future. When you have a long document and you just need say one chapter out of it as a separate PDF, this is the easy way to do it.
Under Page Thumbnails, just choose Extract Pages.
