Extract PDF Pages Activity

Description

The Extract PDF Pages activity extracts a specified range of pages from a PDF document and returns those pages as a new PDF document.

Usage

Given a multi-page PDF document a workflow might need to extract a subset of pages from the original. The Extract PDF Pages activity accepts either the file path to a PDF document or the byte content of a PDF document and a range of pages to extract. The activity produces a new PDF document containing only the subset of pages. The Write File Bytes activity could write the extracted PDF to disk, or the Create Download activity could generate a URL to the extracted PDF so that an end user could download it.
