What is the advantage of using Multi PDF Splitter over an online service?

Three words: Security, speed, and size! With online services, you need to upload files to a server, which at times may not have the necessary security features in place to protect confidential PDF documents. With a desktop application, every part of the splitting is done on your computer with no file size restrictions or security issues. Since you do not require an internet connection, the file splitting is much faster than online PDF file splitters.

After I split my PDF files into individual files, how do I merge some of them back into one PDF file?

To merge the PDF files into one PDF, you will need to use Batch PDF Merger desktop program.

Will the quality of my original PDF document change after the split?

Not at all. The PDF files that are split off will be of the same quality as the original PDF document. Files will be named sequentially by the program - automatically.

How does Multi PDF Splitter process all these files so quickly?

With our powerful programming algorithm, the heavy lifting to carry out PDF splits is achievable quite quickly and securely on your computer. Your files never leave your desktop.

Do you have a mobile app that I can run on my iPhone or iPad?

Sorry, we do not have a mobile app available. We are working on something and if you'd like to beta test for us, please contact us.

Licensing & Purchasing

I just purchased the program and my license key isn't working. What's wrong?

Multi PDF Splitter is listed in many software directories on the internet. You may have an older version. You will need to download the latest version and delete the current version. Download the latest version of the software here and try re-entering the license code again.

I have 2 computers I personally use. Do I need to purchase 2 licenses?

The license key will activate on one computer. The key cannot be used at the same time on multiple computers.

Here's an example. Let's say the software is activated with a valid license key on your laptop. And, you would like to use the same key to activate the software on your home desktop computer - the key won't activate your desktop computer. You will need separate keys. If you need multiple licenses, we do offer volume discounts.

After I get a license key, do I need to download and install anything?

There is no need to reinstall or download anything else. Your existing installation can be registered by copying and pasting your license key into the registration form of the software.

License key activation instructions can be found here.

Can I call, fax, or email you my credit card number to make a purchase?

No. For your added security, we do not handle credit card information over the phone, email, or fax.

You can pay directly via our secure online online store.

After an order has been placed, how and when will I get my license key?

You will be shown your license key immediately after subscribing. We also send an email within seconds confirming the transaction, which includes the license key for your records and license key activation instructions.

Can I evaluate the software before purchasing it?

Certainly, please download the demo from our download page. The demo is limited by the placement of a SAMPLE mark on the documents and a maximum of 2 files can be processed at once.

A license key will remove these restrictions.

My computer crashed, how do I get my license to work again?

If you lost your license key, contact our support desk with the name and the email that was used for the purchase.

How do I transfer the license key from one computer to another?

The license key will only activate a single computer. This key cannot be used at the same time on other computers.

Here's an example. Let's say the software was activated with a valid license key on your laptop. And, you would like to use the same key to activate the software on your home desktop computer - the key won't activate your desktop computer.

We do offer our license owners 3 free license key resets in order to move keys around, for situations shown above. Visit the reset page.

If you need to have both laptop and desktop fully activated, you will need to purchase an additional key. We also offer volume discounts.

Why is there a SAMPLE mark on my image?

This is a limitation of our demo version. To permanently remove the SAMPLE mark and be able to split more than 2 files at once, you will need to purchase a license key from our web store

In some cases, a user will activate the license and inadvertently try to split a file that has the SAMPLE mark on it from previous runs. Make sure you use the original files, ones without the SAMPLE mark after you have activated the license key.

The software seems to be running slow and sometimes stalls, are there file size limitations??

File size limitation is hard to predict. The program's processing speed and capability depend on many variables. Depending on file sizes, quantity of files and complexity, your computer's available RAM, processing speed, and operating system, the processing times will vary. Try to close out any unnecessary applications when running the program - this may help speed up processing times.
