How can you divide the PDF file, or better which program I would need?

Thanks and cheers

That's a great price vs what I found at Staples in the USA - per their web pages, IIRC they want 0.42 US dollars per color page. I assume this high rate is because they are using color ink jet printers in which expensive ink may be used.

The most straightforward way to divide a PDF file into two halves is to print it twice to PDF. Often (not always) your computer comes with a PDF pseudo-printer. If not, I recommend CutePDF Writer.

I have Adobe Acrobat XI Pro version. It will do many things to PDF files, including splitting a document, as long as the PDF permissions are not restrictive.

After I receive my copy of PSX next week I will try to remember to test the user manual PDF and learn if Acrobat XI is happy doing things like splitting up a user's copy into multiple sections.

Unfortunately, Adobe Acrobat is fairly expensive. It also has more bugs than I would like to see. Hoppie's solution should be even simpler, of course.

Hardy will have to tell us if it's OK to mess with his manual before I would attempt anything, of course.

The PDF is not optimized for CMYK printing. It is optimized for RGB monitor reading. If you print this PDF, the result on the paper won't look professional. 65 Euro is a lot for a print that won't look professional.

Maybe we will produce an extra print manual next year or so. Maybe. Or maybe not. If you can wait, then wait. If it's urgent, print a semi-professional copy now.

Hardy, I'm reopening an old subject here from last August, but have you had any further thoughts on producing a print version of the Operations Manual?

Thanks.

No, there will be no print version. I think the demand is nearly zero.
